The National Centre for Citizenship and the Law learning team in Nottingham are hosting an Education Open Evening on:

Wednesday 10th February 2016 4.15-615pm at the City of Caves and Galleries of Justice Museum.

This event is ideal for all key stage 2 and 3 teachers, educators and learning support staff and is particularly useful for school trip, history, geography, science and enrichment coordinators.

During the open evening attendees will be inspired to take learning outside the classroom and will consider how local heritage sites such as the City of Caves can inspire young people to learn more about the history and geography of Nottingham.
