The National Programmes team at the British Museum has announced an open call for partners for the second phase of Learning Museum, the British Museum’s latest Skills for the Future programme, which is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Learning Museum is an entry-level vocational training programme to be delivered in partnership with twenty museums and heritage centres across the UK between 2014 and 2017. Through Learning Museum partners will: provide young people from all backgrounds with a year-long programme high quality work-based training that will involve championing best practice in museum collections, programming and development; and creating a strong professional network for sharing expertise amongst all parties.
Applications to be part of the Learning Museum programme will be accepted until 1 December, and are welcome from UK museums, galleries and heritage centres of all shapes and sizes. We are particularly keen to collaborate with organisations with no previous experience of partnership with the British Museum.
