Roz Bonnet, 17.10.2018

The second tranche of the South West Museum Development SW Museum Skills: Essentials 2018/19 sessions are now open for booking. CLICK HERE to book your place.

From January to March 2019, South West Museum Development will be hosting 10 SW Museum Skills: Essentials training sessions across the South West.  These sessions have been designed to support museums in the region and have been developed in consultation with the sector.

This tranche will offer delegates the opportunity to increase their knowledge on a range of topics including retail management, developing fundraising strategies, charity finance and supporting museum security. We are once again working in partnership with Collections Trust to support museums to adopt the new Spectrum 5 standard, as well as a session on Review and Rationalisation of Collections.

The South West Museum Development thematic officers will also be offering courses in customer care for volunteers, understanding audiences and developing online collections.
