Skills and methodology workshops (Level 2)

Once you are familiar with how to navigate the archive, you may feel you need more detailed guidance in the records relevant to your particular field.

Our PAST skills and methodology workshops will show you how to navigate records useful for your specific area of research and provide you with the skills you need to use and interpret them.

During each workshop, students will receive tuition and guidance on a range of archival research skills specific to their research area. Each two-day Skills and Methodology workshop will take place on site at The National Archives in Kew.
