Support Scotland's heritage by giving now to the National Trust for Scotland

About us

The Learning Services Department supports learners of all ages.

We do this in many ways but especially through:

  • events for adults and children
  • interpretive displays for all visitors
  • curriculum-based programmes for schools
Who are we?

Two Learning Managers, based at area offices, have responsibility across the Trust. At certain sites, Learning Managers and Officers devise in-depth programmes for lifelong learning, including active learning for schools.

The Interpretation Team, based at the Trust’s central office, create permanent displays and a wide range of interpretive material for all Trust places.

The NTS Ranger/Naturalists deliver learning in the Trust’s country parks and countryside places while protecting important areas of natural heritage.

Many other people in the Trust support learning - in particular, the Volunteering and Conservation departments, and, of course, the staff at all Trust sites who look after our visitors each day.
