 NEXT GENERATION 2019/2020 – Management Training Course

The Yorkshire and Humberside Federation of Museums and Galleries is proposing to lead another Next Generation Management Development programme for 2019-2020. The programme is delivered in up to ten workshops (plus an induction meeting) at monthly intervals provisionally starting in October 2019 and finishing in May 2020. The exact programme is developed with the candidates at the start of the course. Workshops are held at various locations throughout Yorkshire. Delegates will visit a number of interesting museum and library locations and hear from senior museum and library professionals.  For all further information please download the flyer to the left of this page.

Training Affordability Principles

Courses will be reasonably priced, discounted for Fed members, and three free volunteer places will be made available on a first come first served basis (one per institiution).

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
