The Heritage Education Trust recognises and promotes good practice in learning services within the historic environment. Recognition is made through the annual Sandford Awards for Heritage Education, which consider the provision of quality education in and about historic sites, buildings, collections and artefacts.
Promotion is through advocacy and a network of good practice. This is undertaken in many ways including specific projects under the banner of HERO - Heritage Education Regional Outreach. We seek to encourage innovation, transferability and sustainability alongside fun and enjoyment in education programmes.
The Trust offers a consultancy service to relevant properties and encourages schools to look for the Heriatge Education Trust's quatrefoil logo as a quality assured sign when seeking appropriate venues for out of classroom learning experiences within the historic environment.
