The Learning Department runs a year-round programme of events for a range of audiences, both in the galleries and in the Learning Centre.

There are programmes for schools, families, young people, adults, students and creative industry professionals, including digital and community events and activities. Learning Department staff also develop online learning content and other educational resources, such as trails and back-packs.  All of these activities are firmly rooted in, and inspired by, the V&A’s collections and exhibitions.

The Learning Department also undertakes visitor research, develops interpretation – from labels to computer interactives – and manages the Museum Residencies programme in the Sackler Centre Studios and the Ceramics Studio.  Staff from the Department also work across the Museum on cultural diversity, disability access, social inclusion and other equality issues.
