LEARNING PROVISION FOR WIRELESS IN WALES


March 2011 - 2013


An HLF funded project
 


Funding for the Learning Provision for the Wireless in Wales project was approved by HLF during winter 2010/11. Over the last two years much activity has taken place to enrich the organisation and highlight its lifelong learning potential within the community and beyond.
The project focuses on the heritage of radio and radio broadcasting in Wales and it strives to give access to a wider audience delivering Key Stage 2 workshops in History and Technology as well as life-long learning events to the local community involving youth groups, older people’s groups and families.

HLF Project

The 2 year project to develop our learning provision came to an end in April 2013.  It was funded by the Heritage Lotetry Fund and enabled us to have 3 part time members of staff to develop learning resources, improve learning displays, organise events, visits to the museum etc.  Further details available by clicking on Projects in the main menu above or by clicking here.Lottery Logo
