Northern Ireland Museums Council seeks to ensure that our museums have the capacity to offer the highest possible standards in Developing Audiences, Education and Learning, Collections Development, Care, Management and Use, and, Infrastructure, Investment and Resources.

The new training programme continues to be the primary means of supporting professional development.

Responding to the demands and challenges within the sector the foci of the Training Programme this year are:

Community Engagement

Audience Development

Well-Being & Social Impact

Collections Care and Management

Peer learning is also emphasised within the programme with a focus on building an understanding, and sharing of good practice within the sector through local case study examples. 

This year there is a move to utilise the resources and expertise within the local museums through local museums as hosts for the training.  This enables the involvement of local staff, collections and exhibitions.

Over the course of the year we will keep you informed of any additional workshops and information sessions we plan to run.  In the meantime, we hope that you will be able to make the most of this current programme.
