LEARNING AND ENGAGEMENT

The Learning and Engagement programme is the jewel in the educational crown at The Kent Mining Museum.

We are a centre for learning excellence and pride ourselves on leading inclusive and empowering workshops that engage young people to delve further into their local history, to become more informed, creative and inspired people. Our sessions are accessible for SEND, Home Education groups and for school groups from Early Years across the Key Stages to Further Education groups.

“I would like to thank [The Kent Mining Museum] for the fantastic day the children had. It was clear that the day had been well thought out and a great deal of thought had been put into how to impart rich knowledge to the children in an engaging way.” Local primary teacher, Summer 2022
