In response to the need to train a new generation of museum professionals worldwide, the British Council and University College London (UCL) launched the Museum Training School.

In London (UK) in August 2014, four week-long courses were delivered:

  • How to build local, national and international partnerships
  • How to develop exhibitions
  • How to develop schools and learning programmes
  • How to develop community engagement programmes

The courses were evaluated by an independent consultant and achieved a 96% satisfaction score by participants.
