South West Museum Skills 2020/21

Our popular training programme will be back this Autumn and will look a little different from usual to reflect current circumstances. We want to ensure the training and accompanying resources we provide meet your needs not only now, but once your museum has reopened.

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

Supporting resources for you:
