Museums and galleries around the world are experiencing unprecedented growth and rapid change. These changes accelerate the need to train a new generation of museum leaders. In response to this need, the British Council and University College London (UCL) have joined together to launch the Museum Training School.

The mission of the Museum Training School is to provide arts and heritage professionals from around the world with the skills and knowledge necessary to increase the sustainability and growth of museums and galleries.

The synergy of the British Council and UCL provides a unique learning experience with an international approach and outlook. The alumni of the Museum Training School will join a global network of museum and gallery leaders.

The 2014 Summer School will take place in London, home to many of the world’s top museums and art galleries; it will involve four stand-alone courses that can be taken alone or in sequence. These will cover,

  • How to build local, national and international partnerships
  • How to develop exhibitions
  • How to develop a schools and learning programme
  • How to develop community engagement programmes

The deadline for the 2014 Summer School (Sunday 18 May 2014) has now passed.
