Learning and Access

The learning and access team aims to help museums, archives and libraries develop accessible and inclusive collections and services that provide learning, inspiration and enjoyment for everyone.

The team takes the approach that the learning agenda cannot be separated from the access agenda. In other words, people cannot engage with or use collections and services unless they have physical, sensory, intellectual, financial and cultural access to them. This broad understanding of the term access also informs the work of the team, which covers cultural diversity, disability and social inclusion issues. There is a similarly broad understanding of museums', archives' and libraries' role in learning, with the team covering both formal and lifelong learning.

The integral links between the access and learning agendas can be seen in much of our work, for example Inspiring Learning for All: A Vision for Access and Learning in Museums, Archives and Libraries.

The links on the left (Learning, Cultural Diversity, Disability, Social Inclusion) lead to the key work areas of the team where more information may be found.

For further information about the work of the team, please contact Sahar Vagan, email sahar.vagan@mla.gov.uk or phone 020 7273 1445.
