Collection care training

The training programmes run by the Regional Collection Care team will remain free, and will be open to everyone working or volunteering within London museums.

As well as the main training programme, we also offer Flexible training, where the Regional Collection Care team come out to your institution to train you on site. For further information about our Flexible training offer, please download our application information (PDF 36kb, opens in new tab).

Many collection care courses come with free kits which complement the course and enable participants to put their new found knowledge into practice back at their institution.
