Higher & Further Education
Gunnersbury Park Museum holds a range of fascinating collections, including an archive, related to the history of the local area. These can be used alongside the expertise of our staff to give your students an amazing insight into the past within a number of topics of study at college and university level.
To find out more about what we could offer for your group or to make a booking please contact us.
As well as organised workshops, we encourage self-led group visits to the museum and park but do please book in advance with the learning team so that we can check availability of spaces.
Those doing ESOL courses can have a free self-guided group visit, which is a great way to introduce general topics such as culture, local history and to practice their vocabulary, but please do book with the Formal Learning Team in advance so we can check in case any of the spaces are closed due to other events. You can download and print our specially designed ESOL Resource Sheets to help guide your students and provide fun quiz questions. There is a less advanced level sheet if you click here and a slightly more advanced sheet if you click here. We can provide a Tutor Resource Sheet with additional background information and all the answers to the questions on the students' quiz sheets if you contact us.
Groups can do orienteering here. They will use the maps and a variety of routes of different lengths and skill levels to locate the markers around the park. Maps are freely available via the website of the British Orienteering Club at Gunnersbury Park - Go Orienteering
For those doing certain relevant courses, in particular Museum Studies or Teaching courses, we will consider taking on students for work placements.
There may also be opportunities for students to volunteer with us and to find out more about that click here.
