All sessions are free, and do not require any equipment or previous experience. If you would like to join a session, please email email@example.com.

Activities for group leaders
Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
As part of the Community Access Scheme, we offer a range of continuing professional development opportunities to support group leaders to bring groups independently to Kew.
Our programmes will ensure that you have the skills, confidence and resources you need to help your group learn about our science and collections.
Community Connectors are individuals who live or work in the local community and are interested in helping us develop new learning opportunities and resources. They represent various sectors of the community and assist our team as volunteer advisors.
If you are interested in volunteering for the Community Learning programme, please contact Communitylearning@kew.org
