About the SW Museum Skills programme

The programme uses expertise within the South West Museum Development team and our partners to deliver accessible and relevant training for those working in or volunteering in museums across the South West region. This ensures skills and knowledge are up to date and organisations have the opportunity to develop their workforce and how they operate.

SW Museum skills training is either completely or partly subsidised by Arts Council England and supporting Local Authorities. Sessions broadly focus on the three Accreditation standard requirements – Organisational health, Managing collections and Users and their experiences.

We offer training in the following key categories:

ESSENTIALSThe South West Museum Development team along with regional and national partners deliver sessions as part of a formal training programme from September to March. Sessions are typically one day in length.

FORUMS Forums operate at a regional and sub regional level on specialist topics.

PLUS Practice-based workshop style sessions focussed on a particular subject matter, often accompanied by kits to support practice back at your organisation. Sessions are typically one day in length or a training programme in its own right.

Other bespoke training and events are delivered according to need.
