Covid-19 Update: Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, we will be making changes to our planned training programmes for 2020 - 2021. Where possible our training will be delivered online and, where appropriate, we will edit and refocus the content of our sessions to be relevant for the current situation. We have already delivered sessions on Planning for Reopening, Agile for Museums, Working Remotely, Fundraising in a Crisis and Planning for Alternative Futures. You will be able to find our upcoming training sessions below and advertised in our weekly E-Update, which you can find at the bottom of our News page. If we need to make any last minute announcements for our events we will try to do so via email or our Twitter account.
All paid and unpaid staff working for non-National (and non-NPO), Accredited museums in the London region are eligible to apply for our training courses. This includes furloughed staff.

The Skills Plus training programme provides 18 relevant and practical workshops to London’s museums. These courses provide opportunities to find out about best practice and hear case studies of how others have made improvements at their museums. Following our 2018 Training Needs Analysis, we are looking to develop London’s museum staff and volunteers to have the business, income generation, management and marketing skills they need to be fully equipped to work within the contemporary museum environment. This will be done alongside more heritage-specific training covering the Accreditation themes of Collections, Audiences and Organisational Health.
You can apply for a place on these courses below, or directly through our booking form. We will be releasing an updated calendar for the 2020 - 2021 Skills Plus training programme as soon as possible.
