2018-2019 One Day Course Training Programme

The programme for 2018/2019 is currently being developed. The annual training programme generally runs from September/October to June. It is designed to offer sector specific training to its institutional, personal members and museum workers from across the region.  The courses on offer have been tailored to your needs, based upon requirement and demand. We try to offer about 6 or 7 course per training season, averaging out at one a month. Each course has three places free to volunteers at institutional member museums and galleries. It’s a great way to access new skills and network to share experience and learn. For details of course’s please visit our events 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
