This training designed for those working or volunteering in south west museums, including furloughed staff and freelancers. The topics have been developed to support museums with the ongoing impact of the pandemic and to help develop skills and resilience for the future.

Our summer training programme offers support to help you re-engage with your audience and build diverse communities as the restrictions ease.  We have sessions to build your confidence in maintaining an accessible, user-friendly website, as well as guidance on continuing your collections care, safely. In May, we are pleased to be offering 1-2-1 surgeries for museums seeking support in recruiting and retaining volunteers.

We will also be hosting more SW Museum Skills Plus sessions later this year, which will be focused workshops and knowledge sharing opportunities. Keep an eye on the SW Museum Skills Plus pages and sign up to our newsletter.
