CPD and Events for Teachers

We run a number of events for teachers throughout the year.  This includes networking and consultation, subject specific training and project development days.

Coronation of our Queen – Collaboration Day for Teachers – Thursday 18th May 2017

Bring the Queen’s Coronation to life at Beamish with immersive hands-on enquiry.

Beamish Museum will soon begin building a new 1950s Town (including: Cinema, housing, shops, community hall, police house, bowling pavilion and more). As part of this, we are working to develop a new KS1 activity exploring the 1953 Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II – and we are inviting schools to collaborate with us. If you would like to bring pupils to Beamish and participate in a pilot project, join us on our ‘Coronation’ Collaboration Day on Thursday 18th May 2017:

  • Learn about funding available to bring pupils to the museum
  • Experience hands-on immersive activity in the Pit Cottage
