The FED Training Affordability Principles

Courses will be reasonably priced, discounted for Fed members, and for most courses, three free volunteer places will be made available on a first come first served basis (one per institution). We reserve the right to reduce the number of free places offered depending on the course maximum number allowed.

Courses will be led by experienced trainers who have relevant and current knowledge and skills, as well as experience of working in the heritage sector.

Courses will enable members to develop and add to their own skills and knowledge base, and to ensure that the courses we offer are up to date and relevant to the sector, our course programme will reflect members feedback. To that end we welcome course suggestions, so if you would like to see a specific training topic covered please contact the FED
