Research aims to improve offer to children and young people
Arts Council England (ACE) has launched a review of formal learning in museums and wants to hears the views of the sector.

The arts council has commissioned CapeUK, a not-for-profit organisation that aims to improve the lives of children and young people, to carry out the review. As part of its work, CapeUK is asking museums that work with schools to complete a short survey.

Response from museums will inform the research and recommendations to ACE about the future of formal learning in museums and help it plan its advocacy and investment in this area.

ACE said that the research will also highlight innovations and insights that can be shared within the sector and help improve museums improve their offer to children and young people across all phases of formal education, from three to 19 years old.

The deadline for taking part in the survey is 29 February.
