Please could you help by completing this survey if relevant to you?
We are asking for help in the development of a HLF Skills for the Future programme:
Discoveries, that if successful will invest in a new generation of diverse museum professionals to equip them with a dynamic understanding of
data management, preservation and access practices relating to museum collections.
27 trainees, based in museums across the UK, will form a proactive network through which essential
skills, tools and workflows are developed and shared between trainees, host museums and the wider sector. Trainees will tackle key challenges of
management, from securing at-risk legacy data to maximising the value of
such as photographs. Positive action recruitment will seek to appoint trainees who demonstrate a natural
talent and benefit the diversity profiles of their host museum. After a year of on-the-job training, trainees will be able to harness essential skills and act as champions in the sector, placing
best practice at the heart of all areas of museum work.
|The Audience Agency is, as part of the R and D stage for this project, carrying out a survey on behalf of the British Museum to learn more about digital skills in the heritage sector. This
survey should take you no more than 10 minutes to complete and is the first part of a process that will be followed up with qualitative research, which is why we ask you to give your organisation's name so that we may ask some follow-up questions by phone
if the need arises.
The programme has not yet begun anf there will be an open application process.
Individual responses will not be made attributable to any individual or organisation publicly, unless we seek and gain permission, and will otherwise only be used internally by the British Museum team to place trainees
for the Digital Heritage programme appropriately, and generically to understand and help address digital skills' needs in the heritage sector as a whole.
Please click on the link below to complete the survey, by or soon after Monday July 31st, and thank you in advance for your participation ...
Many thanks and very best wishes
