Training

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

South West Museum Skills training 2021/22

Our Essentials training and Plus training is currently hosted online, to fit your needs during these challenging times. This year our popular training programme looks a little different from usual, to reflect current circumstances. We want to make sure our training and accompanying resources will meet your needs right now and in the future.

We recognise that there is no one set route moving forward, and our training programme responds to this.

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 are available on request.

We recognise that your development priorities may now have changed, due to the pandemic. We are asking for your feedback to inform future SW Museum Skills training: let us know what your immediate and upcoming training priorities are by sharing your feedback here.
