The Citi Money Gallery education programme draws on the richness of objects on display to offer a unique learning experience.
Students will have the opportunity to put their learning into context and apply their classroom-developed skills in unfamiliar scenarios. The programme links objects and themes with subjects across the Key Stages, with the underlying aim of developing an appreciation of money and an understanding of the social impacts it can have.
The education programme also includes learning opportunities for teachers and community groups, details of which can be found below or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
On 7 March 2014 there will be a free conference hosted by the British Museum’s Citi Money Gallery for teachers and community group leaders, with the key aim being to provide delegates with fresh approaches and strategies to deliver empowering financial education.
Resources inspired by the gallery take the form of stand-alone activities or image banks.
Longer projects, which could be used for transition or enrichment weeks, and short activities suitable for tutor time.
Teachers can book Museum-led sessions and self-led sessions related to the gallery education programme.
More sessions will be available in 2014.
The education programme has been developed with the help of teachers and students.
There are ongoing opportunities to be involved with the education programme as well as using the programme to support your teaching needs.

At least one academic competition will be run every year, providing a unique chance to spend time at the Museum, among other prizes.
The Citi Money Gallery are working with IMA Maths Careers and asking you to design a currency for Earth as part of 2013: Mathematics of Planet Earth.

Sessions are available to complement initial teacher training programmes; bespoke sessions may be available on request.
