Dear All

As you may know, the Campaign for Learning in Museums and Galleries has
been awarded the contract from DfEE to support, monitor and evaluate the
DfEE education grant programme. CLMG is looking for support officers to
help with this work. A job advert is appearing in the Museums Journal
and is being circulated by members of the consortia to people wihtin
their organisations. However GEM is not represented at these meetings as
yet so I thought I would post the job ad here for anyone who is
interested.

Job Description for the CLMG Support Officers

The Campaign for Learning in Museums and Galleries (CLMG) is a
consortium which works together to raise the profile of museum and
gallery education through lobbying, training and publicity. The Museums
& Galleries Commission, The Museums Association, engage, VAGA, the Arts
Council, The Campaign for Learning, AIM and CHNTO are all part of this
group. The Co-ordinator of the consortium is Nicola Nutall who is a
freelance education consultant.

In an exciting new initiative, The DfEE recently gave 2.5 million to 40
museums and galleries over two years to develop education projects aimed
at young people. The successful projects will work predominantly with
young people with a range of different educational needs and cultural
backgrounds. Many of the projects seek to work with audiences
traditionally excluded from museums and galleries. The projects which
have received funding cover a wide range of subject specialisms and
media : art, IT, archaeology, history, social sciences, science,
numeracy, literacy, communication etc. Many are museum or gallery based
but some are for outreach work, travelling exhibitions, and establishing
handling collections. Some projects are proposing to work with archives
as well as with collections and all of them involve museums and
galleries working in partnership with other agencies.

The Campaign for Learning in Museums and Galleries has been contracted
by the DfEE to support the successful museums and galleries in
developing their projects, to disseminate the results of the programme
and to feed these into the development of good practice at a national
level.

The Support Officers' role will be to assist with this work. The Support
Officers will work with a group of museums and galleries (probably 5 or
6 but perhaps more ) over 2.5 years and will be required to provide the
staff working on the DfEE projects with access to support and advice
throughout the project by visits, fax, telephone, e-mail and reports.

The Support Officer will:

Attend a preliminary meeting with the Campaign Co-Ordinator to be
briefed about the project

Establish an e-mail discussion list for the museums and galleries in
their group

Visit each museum or gallery in their group twice: once towards the
beginning of the project and once towards the end of the project. 

Contact the staff in each museum every two months by phone or fax to ask
for an update on the project and to check that everything is going
according to plan.

Send a short file note on each project to the Campaign Co-ordinator
after all such contact 

Maintain appropriate records to facilitate support over the full project
period

Meet twice with the Campaign Co-Ordinator during the course of the two
years to discuss the progress of the projects 

Respond to requests for help and support from the museums and galleries
in their group

Support exploration and development of good practice in each project and
identify issues and models for discussion and dissemination

Notify the Campaign Co-ordinator of any problems which may emerge during
the course of the projects

Provide the Co-ordinator with a full report on each project once it has
been completed.

The Campaign for Learning in Museums will pay a fee of approximately
965 per museum or gallery (to be finalised when projects have been
allocated) which includes support for travel and subsistence. Applicants
may apply to work with more than one group of museums.
