PAST: Postgraduate Archival Skills Training Programme 2017-18 

23rd Jan 2018 - 24th Jan 2018 

he ability to use archives and original documents is a key aspect of academic research across a number of disciplines, but can seem like a daunting and time-consuming task.

The National Archives have developed a programme of postgraduate archival skills training (PAST) to help you get started in the archives and gain the skills and knowledge needed to take your research further.

All sessions are delivered by our records specialists on site in Kew and are based on working with original documents from our collections.
