The deadline for applications to the Transformers training scheme for mid-career professionals has been extended to 30th January. The programme is for those looking to develop new ways of thinking, influence more effectively, and create change for themselves, their colleagues and their organisations.
Museum professionals from anywhere in the UK can subscribe to the Innovate and Influence programmes, while the Diversify programme is open to applications from England, Wales, and Scotland.
In all around 170 trainees will be supported across the three programmes in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Katy Swift, the MA’s project coordinator, Transformers, says: “The Transformers programme is an exciting opportunity for people working in and with museums to proactively meet the opportunities and challenges the sector is facing.
“The MA has built on the success of Transformers by expanding the programme to include three strands: Innovate, Influence and Diversify.
“As the programme coordinator, I passionately believe that it is the people working in museums who change lives.
“Transformers creates a timely opportunity to support and develop museum professionals and I am looking forward to building a cohort of people across the UK who are committed to building a radical and thriving sector.”
Applications to Innovate close on 30 January 2017, and applications to Influence and Diversify close on 28 February 2017.
Before submitting an application to any of the programmes, please ensure you have read the guidance notes to check that the programme is suitable for you.
