Training

We deliver targeted training for people working in museums of all shapes and sizes to help connect, follow best practice, and learn new skills.

South West Museum Skills training 2022

Our interactive Skills programme offers a blend of online and in-person training sessions that cover a range of vital skills and best practices for anyone working or volunteering in the museum sector. Skills training sessions are usually delivered by our Thematic Officers, supported by external partners, on three key areas:

  • Organisational health.
  • Managing collections.
  • Users and their experiences.

Information on previous sessions delivered as part of the SW Museum Skills programme is available on request.

If you are unable to attend interactive training sessions, please take a look at our e-learning content, which is self-directed and available 24 hours a day.
