Marsh Award for Excellence in Gallery Education

 Betty Williams Award

We are delighted to announce that the work of The Roche Court Educational Trust has been recognised through two prestigious awards.

Emma Kerr, Head of Education, won the Marsh Award for Excellence in Gallery Education 2016 from Engage – The National Association of Gallery Education in recognition of her instrumental role underpinning all activities at the Trust by launching the learning framework ‘Looking, Thinking and Speaking’. The Award celebrates the hard work, dedication and innovation of colleagues working within the sector of gallery, museum and visual arts education.

Emma is a passionate advocate for involving state-school students in galleries, art history and art-making; environments that can, from a student’s perspective, typically appear a rarefied and exclusive community.

Furthermore the Trust has been awarded the South Wilts Mencap Betty Williams Award 2016 in recognition of our work with their members. Each year, the award is presented by Mencap to an organisation that has demonstrated an outstanding commitment through the activities provided to help people with learning disabilities to enjoy life more and develop their abilities.

The Roche Court team have been excellent at going that extra mile in ensuring activities at the sculpture park are interesting, thought-provoking, inclusive and educational.

We are thrilled to have received these awards in recognition of our ongoing commitments to all those we work with.
