The Jewish Museum London Learning & Engagement Team has an award winning learning offer for schools and a vibrant informal learning programme. Last financial year, the Learning and Engagement Team delivered our ground breaking Jewish Heritage programmes to over 21,000 students in total, including up to 11,000 students attending in person workshops, 8,800 in virtual broadcasts and over 2,000 students benefitting from outreach visits, travelling exhibitions and loans boxes. Our Engagement programme offers family events, adult learning opportunities, and outreach reminiscence to older people in care homes.
The Learning & Engagement Assistant role works as part of a team to support the administration and delivery required for the department. This includes all bookings and support delivery for the schools programme (outreach, virtual and from 2024 in person workshops) and engagement offer in partnership venues.
The Jewish Museum learning and engagement programme aims to develop creativity, critical thinking and communication skills with students and learners of all ages. We challenge prejudices and stereotypes, and ensure our workshops meet curriculum requirements across a range of subject areas. The learning and engagement programmes draw on the Museum’s wide-ranging collections, with object handling as a central feature of each workshop.
Objects are used as creative springboards to engage and inspire participants with the ‘real thing’ and to create a sense of wonder and curiosity about the collection. The Museum’s learning and engagement team passionately believe that engaging students in dialogue in a safe learning environment encourages children to develop enjoyment and confidence in learning through objects. Our workshops and activities are designed to encourage students to gain knowledge and understanding about Judaism, the Holocaust, and migration, and to build interfaith and intercultural understanding and respect.
