The Community Learning Team organises free half-day training courses for Community Group Leaders.

This training offers practical guidance for bringing community groups to the Horniman and provides the skills needed to use the Horniman independently to develop your own projects and group visits.

This training is only for community or voluntary sector workers who want to bring their clients of all ages and support needs to enjoy the Horniman. It is also valuable for organisations who are exploring developing a partnership with the Horniman.
