By the end of the session, we will have

learned about the different museum sites and collections at National Museums Scotland, in the context of Scotland's tourism sector; discovered the variety of different roles that are involved in looking after and enabling access to our objects and buildings; found out about the transferable work skills involved in the job of a learning Enabler.


In this session, you’ll hear from one of the learning team about their job as Learning Enablers.

Enablers are part of the team who help people learn more about
the museum’s collections by delivering workshops, events and activities. This job is all about People and Communication. Would your pupils like to do a job like this? By meeting one of the team, watching a short film, and taking part in an interactive quiz, pupils can discover more about the key transferable skills involved.
