Dear all,

We are about to go through a minor restructuring.  Education and Outreach 
are currently split within the service and I would like to see them pulled 
together under 1 Senior Management Team member whose sole remit 
is 'Learning' in the broadest sense - ie a Learning and Audience 
Development Manager (or equivelant) - as we already overlap in so many 
areas is seems sensible to do so and will ensure consistency and clarity of 
learning opportunities across the service for both staff and users.

I think one of the reasonings behind the split is that, because of the 
diverse nature of Leicester's communities, the needs of community and 
family groups are very different from those of our other 'learning' 
audiences and therefore, their strategic management within the service and 
with external bodies (Children's/Adult Services, Family Learning Group, 
NIACE, Learning & Skills Council etc...) should be seperate.  My 
experience, along with that of my Outreach colleagues, suggests that this 
is not the case.

Therefore, I am asking, no, pleading for you to give 5-10 mins of your time 
to provide any evidence that supports either side of this debate.  Is 
Education/Outreach split on your SMT?  Either way, why?  Was there any 
consultation carried out that effected your decision? Does your 
museum/service have a large number of ethnic communities/visitors?  How 
does this effect the structure/running of your Education/Outreach team(s)?  
Anything else we should consider?

The more evidence I can collate of what appears to be the accepted view, 
then the stronger my argument for change (or, the easier to reassure our 
Ed/Outreach teams that the continuation of segregation is workable, if that 
is the case).

Although I'd like to use any evidence given in my arguments, if requested, 
I will ensure your/your museum's anonyimity is maintained, and just include 
you in my stats.

Thanking you enormously in advance for your time.

Yours sincerely,

Jim Butler,
Education Manager,
Leicester City Museums.
