This roadmap provides guidance on implementing a recruitment model that engages a more diverse range of people – through partnership building, taster days, and group interviews. This model was used during the British Museum’s HLF Skills for the Future project, the Learning Museum. The programme aimed to:
- NURTURE the next generation of the museum workforce, drawing in fresh perspectives from a diverse cohort of trainees, enabling them to harness the power of objects and engage under-represented audiences.
- CHAMPION best practice in dynamic collections skills and showcase innovation in museum development across the UK, ensuring a sustainable future for the museum sector.
- DEVELOP a proactive network of trainees, partner museums and the British Museum, leading to long-term nationwide collaborative projects of all kinds.
The COVID-19 virus is the same wherever you are in the world. In fact its lack of variation (so far) is something that makes a vaccine likely to work. However, the response to the pandemic varies from place to place.
Recently, Learning & Participation Consultant Ashleigh caught up (virtually) with Lucy Turner, Early Years Producer at The Whitworth Art Gallery.
