SCA Education Coaching Programme 2018

SCA Education Coaching Programme 2018

In 2018 five services each benefitted from several days of coaching and support from Douglas Roberts, SCA’s Education Development Officer. You can read about their experiences here, and see some of the educational work that developed from the programme.

“We are delighted with the outcome of our SCA Education Coaching. Douglas’s input has been invaluable to the process of creating a new education offer for Perth & Kinross Archive Service.”

-Sarah Wilcock, Archivist, Perth & Kinross Archive

“Getting Douglas for three full days was brilliant – he helped us focus on the aims of the project, came up with potential ideas of a product and guided us in terms of what material could be most effectively used.”

-Jan Merchant, Senior Archivist, Dundee University Archives

“It was extremely useful having access to an experienced teacher who has previously structured workshops and is knowledgeable in drama techniques for both primary and secondary children, to assist in adapting our material and giving advice.”

-Jocelyn Grant, Outreach and Learning Manager, National Records of Scotland

In 2019’s Education coaching programme we are working with seven archive services around Scotland, providing professional coaching to develop outreach projects, widen access, learn new skills and create education resources.
