Resources for Museum Mentors

South West Museum Development Programme has been providing support for Arts Council England’s Accreditation scheme for museums since 2014, this includes working with Museum Mentors who work with museums without a museum professional, to help with developing applications for Accreditation through to subsequent Accreditation returns.

In recognition that mentors require ongoing skills development to undertake their role and to continue to make valuable contributions to the museums they engage with we have been developing resources as part of our activity which can be found below.

In addition we also work in partnership with other museum development providers and schemes including South East Museum Development Programme, Heritage Lottery Fund Catalyst Inspiring a Culture of Philanthropy, Collections Trust and the Museum Association to deliver training and events to support Museum Mentors with their continuous professional development.
