South West Museum Skills Programme

The South West Museum Skills Programme (SWMDP) is publicly funded by Arts Council England and provides subsidised museum specific training in the region delivered by the South West Museum Development Programme. Thanks to this funding, training is offered to staff, trustees and volunteers working in and supporting museums within Arts Council England’s Accreditation Scheme in the South West at no or low cost.

An exclusive benefit for SWFed members is that members are able to access this training as part of their membership.
