Join us online for The MERL Teachers’ Panel, a chance for teachers to share their views and shape our learning programmes.

It is a forum for primary, secondary, SEN teachers and trainee teachers. With exclusive opportunities to engage with our object, archive and library collections, as a member of our panel you will help steer and shape The MERL learning programmes and get involved in collaborative projects.

Supporting young people impacted by dementia

This Teacher Panel will be onsite in The MERL garden. It will be an opportunity to share updates, reconnect and look ahead to the next academic year and to some of the museum projects which will be inspiring opportunities for schools. We will also be joined by partners of The MERL, Younger People with Dementia (YPWD) and Admiral Nurses, who will be sharing plans for the development of a toolkit to support young people whose lives have been impacted by a parental or a family diagnosis of early onset dementia.

Join the discussion, relax in the museum and garden and enjoy a complimentary cream tea, with a fresh scone, homemade jam and clotted cream from the MERL cafe.
