Services for further & higher education

We can enrich your students’ education, whatever their age.

We have worked with the history department at the University of Essex to develop a training day for its first year undergraduates, which provides a valuable complement to their studies, and starts to get them thinking about undertaking their own research projects. A typical training day includes:

  • An introduction to using archives
  • A behind-the-scenes tour
  • A display showing the varied nature of sources to be found in a county archive
  • An introduction to the Essex Sound and Video Archive
  • A short palaeography exercise
  • A mini research challenge

To discuss a training day please email heritage.education@essex.gov.uk.
