Tyne and Wear Museums and Archive formal partnership
At our last OWL Board meeting it was confirmed that Tyne and Wear Museums and Archive would become a formal OWL Trust Partner. We are delighted to welcome them to our Trust and they will attend our future Board meetings. Jane McFadyen of Newburn Manor and Mark Outterside of Waverley met with Iain Watson from TWMA at the end of the summer 2014 in order to explore collaboration. It was clear from this first meeting that Iain had some great ideas that would assist our learners. Iain has overall responsibility for TWAM’s focus on ensuring that everyone in Tyne and Wear has access to archives and museums provision and that it has a significant and positive impact upon their lives. Iain is certainly keen that this is particularly evident across OWL Trust schools. Watch out for future OWL/TWAM collaboration events.
