Sandford Cascade Sharing Workshop

Sandford Cascade Workshop at Derby Silk Mill

Last week we gathered together at Derby Silk Mill to discuss the project outcomes and to provide support to new museums that have joined us on their journey to applying for Sandford Award for museum education. What emerged from our discussions is both the range of approaches that we have in delivering learning programmes and the similarity of our guiding principles. The Cascade project offers organisations the opportunity to view other museums learning programme in action, which we have learnt from our partner organisations, is really beneficial to practice.
