AIM Hallmarks Learning Opportunities – Deadline Soon

The Association of Independent Museums (AIM) has recently launched two new development programmes as part of its Hallmarks of Prospering Museums programme with a closing date of 5pm on 29 January for all applications. Both training programmes will help participants use the principles of the AIM Hallmarks of Prospering Museums to strengthen the museums they lead or work with.

Museum Leaders Programme

AIM has recently launched the new UK wide Museum Leaders programme to support people who lead AIM member museums. Applicants must be the most senior member of staff in their museum and will usually be the Director or Chief Executive of their organisation. Where a museum is part of an umbrella body, we are looking for applicants who have sufficient autonomy to lead significant change in their museum. The following places are available across the UK:

England – 12 places supported with funding from Arts Council England

Wales – 1 place supported with funding from The Federation of Museums & Art Galleries of Wales and AIM

Scotland/Wales/ Northern Ireland – 2 places supported using funding from the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation. Both these places are open to two people from across these regions.

Museum Enablers Programme

For the first time, the museum sector has an in depth training programme specifically for people who help museums prosper and thrive such as museum development officers, freelance consultants and anyone else whose role is to support museums in England.

Funded by Arts Council England, the programme will be led by experienced third sector consultants HBRL Consulting and will help participants to understand the issues that impact on organisational resilience and to develop their own consultancy skills to support museums more effectively.
