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.

Course suggestions should be sent to, Freelance Training Officer or contact the FED
