Training programmes

The London Museum Development and Regional Collection Care teams offer support to London’s non-national museums through a range of free training programmes.

Key ongoing training programmes, Skills Plus and Digital Futures, respond to the call in the government’s 2017 Mendoza Review of the English museums sector for greater emphasis on generic non-heritage skills such as business planning, management, income generation, marketing and digital. Our understanding of how to respond to the Mendoza findings has been greatly enhanced by our own Training Needs Analysis of the London non-national museum sector (PDF 690kb, opens in new tab).

Alongside the Skills Plus and Digital Futures we are running Strong and Safe, in association with The National Archives. This training programme is designed with the needs of those working in Local Authority Museums and Archives in mind.
