The launch of the pilot education volunteering programme has been an exciting opportunity to create something that could extend the work of the education team and allow English Heritage to truly engage with the communities around its sites. The education volunteering programme represents the first attempt at national coordination of volunteer effort in English Heritage. It was introduced in order to help achieve one of the aims of the English Heritage learning strategy, namely to help people to understand and enjoy the historic environment.
