Teacher familiarisation days

Our familiarisation days are offered free of charge to all teachers who are leading, or thinking of leading, a school visit to one of our sites. 

They are specifically designed to assist teachers in their planning and enhance their knowledge and skills ensuring that they lead their visit with confidence.
