2020 One Day Course Training Programme

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we have made the difficult decision to postpone our Training and Events programme. We hope to move many of the sessions we had planned for 2020 to new dates in 2021. We will also be issuing a survey to our members soon to seek input into what training you’d like to see next year so we can make sure it is tailored to new and changing needs in the sector. 

In response to our recent member survey we have arranged the following workshops to take place online over the next few months:

Next Generation Management Training Programme 2019/2020:

The final sessions for our 2019/2020 Next Generation Programme are now continuing with a mix of in person and digital attendance. We are monitoring the situation and will continue to schedule all remaining sessions in agreement with our delegates.

We hope to run the programme again in 2020/2021. Further details are available in the download on the left or you can contact the training coordinator: Jane Walton: 07791021992 jane@janewalton.org.uk

 

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
