The Training Museum

The Training Museum is an exciting workforce transformation programme for Colchester + Ipswich Museums, generously supported by Arts Council England.

The project is running from 2015 – 18 and involves a number of strands of activity.

Museum objects provide excellent learning resources and museum spaces are a wonderful environment in which to learn from them. Furthermore, our team are experts when it comes to heritage and culture.

Through fully-funded traineeships, aimed at individuals with no prior museum employment, we are opening up routes to the museum sector.

Volunteers can be a fantastic experience for all involved and we are keen to share our opportunities with new audiences.
