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 modestly priced, discounted for Fed members and we usually offer three free places for one volunteer from each of the Institutional members.

Courses are led by experienced museum senior staff who share their knowledge and skills.

Networking is a vital element for keeping up with what is happening within the sector and lively exchange of views and best practice is also encouraged through the programme.

Courses are held in different museums and art galleries around the region.  We usually arrange a short tour of the museum to update trainees on new work.

We welcome course suggestions, please  contact the FED
