Izzy Bartley – Heritage Education and Interpretation Consultant

Working with museums, galleries and outdoor heritage sites, I specialise in creating innovative and engaging heritage education and interpretation materials, combining my background in teaching with my passion for heritage.  Having taught a wide range of subjects including citizenship, religious studies, environmental education, science, art and outdoor education, and with a Masters in Cultural Heritage, I have a broad knowledge and skill base from which to draw.

With expertise in inquiry-based and experiential learning, in both formal and informal learning environments, I am passionate about delivering creative approaches to help your audiences get the most from their visit.

How can I help you?

Services I can provide include:

  •   Educational materials (formal and informal)
  •   Digital learning resources
  •   Family trails
  •   Content research
  •   Copywriting and editing

I enjoy collaborating with a network of heritage professionals, including specialists in graphic design, AV technologies, App development and digital media. This flexible approach ensures that the assembled team matches the needs of each project.

“Izzy’s input into our interpretive design projects and the knowledge and experience of educational resources that she brings to a job is invaluable. She applies her understanding of how people interact and engage with content and objects with creativity and imagination, bringing collections and stories to life.  It’s a pleasure working with her!”
