About the survey

The South West Museum Skills programme is publicly funded by Arts Council England alongside the support of contributing local authorities and partners to provide subsidised access to museum specific training in the region. Since 2012, South West Museum Development has invested around £120,000 in the South West Museum Skills programme to support the region's training needs.

Thanks to this public funding, training is offered either fully or partly subsidised to staff, volunteers and trustees working in and supporting all museums within the Accreditation scheme across the South West.

This survey will directly inform the selection of training topics for the South West Museum Skills Programme based on the needs and preferences expressed by respondents for the next three years until March 2022.

Please complete this survey either as an individual or on behalf of your museum depending on your role to ensure we can provide the most relevant and targeted training programme for museums in the south west. For respondents responding on behalf of their museum you will have the opportunity to tell us about your own professional development needs too.

If you have any questions about training delivered by the South West Museum Development programme please contact Roz Bonnet at museum.development@bristol.gov.uk or call on 0117 922 4653.
