Category: History and culture
Qualification: Awareness session
Course Date: 23 June
Day and time: Thursday 10am-3.30pm
Location: Redruth

A one-day introduction to the history of Cornwall that they did not teach you at school! Join us at Cornwall’s very own ‘national library’ and learn the history of Cornwall that they didn’t teach you at school!

This one-day session looks at where we live and the less known events and people that have shaped our communities today.

Kresen Kernow is home to Cornwall’s Archives and is built within the walls of the historic Redruth Brewery.

By the end of this course you should be able to… understand how ‘history’ affects our lives today and acquire the skills and knowledge to begin your own research project.

What can I study next? This awareness session is designed to prepare learners for study at Further and Higher Education level.
