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 is currently hosted online, to fit your needs and keep you safe 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 content responds to this. 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.

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.
