"We have been working with Tom and the team at KIT Theatre over the last 12 months on a project to redevelop the museum’s learning offer for school groups. Tom’s skill and experience in developing sessions which are adventurous, experiential and student-led made KIT the perfect people to lead this project and the impact on staff and volunteers has been significant.
Sessions are now more playful and engaging and feedback suggests that students, teachers and volunteers are responding well to the new methods introduced."
