Welsh Baccalaureate - Learning: National Waterfront Museum
The learning team is developing an expanding programme of talks, workshops and resources for self-led visits to address many the content requirements of the Core and Option choices for all levels of study within the Welsh Baccalaureate qualification.
As part of National Museum Wales, coverage of Curriculum Cymreig is guaranteed.
A visit to the National Waterfront Museum will give candidates an appreciation of the heritage and culture of Wales and will help develop economic and industrial understanding of Welsh history.
The museum promotes ‘learning by doing’ and the use of new technologies to make learning more effective. It provides opportunities for candidates to acquire and practice a range of key skills through investigative research using the museum’s collections and interactive exhibits.
- The museum can be used to study a range of Elements and Key Issues relating to Wales, Europe and the World with particular relevance for the impact of economic and technical change. A short introductory talk and worksheets are available.
- A touring version of the exhibition on emigration called Ffarwel Cymru- Working Abroad is available without charge for schools and colleges to use.This exhibition looks at the people who left Wales in the 19th and 20th centuries and concentrates on industrial causes for their migration. The exhibition is also available on the web here.
