SWMD launches SW Museum Skills Needs Analysis Survey 2019-22

The SW Museum Skills: Needs Analysis Survey 2019-22 had been launched. South West Museum Development (SWMD) is seeking comment on what museum staff and volunteers want from the SW Museum Skills training programme for the next 3 years.
The programme uses expertise within the SWMD team and partners to deliver accessible and relevant training for those working in or volunteering in museums across the South West region. This ensures skills and knowledge are up to date and organisations have the opportunity to develop their workforce and how they operate.

SW Museum skills training is either completely or partly subsidised by Arts Council England and supporting Local Authorities. Sessions broadly focus on the three Accreditation standard requirements – Organisational health, Managing collections and Users and their experiences.
