Learning at Tangmere

A key part of the Museum’s role is as an educational resource. Here, Alan Bower, Curator, updates us on the developments he has been spearheading to further improve our capabilities in this respect:

“I have always believed that our prime function is to offer information and experience to today’s and future generations. This goes under the broad title of education. We are totally aware of the need to get all the history and tremendous stories of military aviation linked to the education framework of our country. We have built up contacts with schools and many now visit regularly. Whilst we have developed our resources to meet this extension in our roll, there has been a lack of a proper facility to use as an education base. This is now being overcome; in partnership with West Sussex County Council we are obtaining a portable classroom which will be equipped for this use. All these developments cost significant sums of money, but I believe they are an investment for the future. We have applied for Planning Consent to have this new building and await the outcome of that. Of course this facility will be developed for education purposes for all ages of visitor.

We have also appointed an Education Officer who has worked with me to develop an education policy and strategy for the museum.
Tangmere looks to the future.”
