Customer feedback

"Telford Culture Zone has been key in the development and success of the Heritage Schools Programme across Telford and Wrekin over the past 12 months. The commitment and energy of Justine Ranson and the work at the TCZ made Telford & Wrekin a first choice for English Heritage. Support was provided by TCZ in the recruitment of a Local Heritage Education Manager and also the recruitment of the cluster of schools to the programme. The reputation and trust the local schools have in TCZ was evident in their eagerness to take part in the programme and the skills and abilities of the TCZ team to broker partnerships, with a range of heritage partners, has enhanced the development of creative projects."

Lois Gyves, Heritage Schools Programme Manager.
