Time Truck Education Officer
As Time Truck Education Officer at MOLA, Ashley is responsible for developing and delivering cross-curricular learning sessions for Key Stage 2 classes in line with the National Curriculum. His work involves devising engaging learning sessions to widen access to archaeology, and encourage both primary school children and the wider public to consider their local heritage using a range of archaeological topics on board the Time Truck, MOLA’s mobile interactive learning centre. As part of his role, Ashley fosters relationships with schools in various London boroughs helping those in less central boroughs with low heritage participation with their access to heritage provision.
Having graduated with a BA in Egyptology, in 2014 Ashley completed an MA in Museums and Galleries in Education at the Institute of Education which complements almost a decade of experience working in education and heritage. Before joining MOLA he spent a number of years both working and volunteering with the National Trust at various sites across the south of England in various education and volunteer-leading roles, as well as working for Orleans House Gallery, the Mary Rose Trust and the Imperial War Museum.
