Our National Training Programme offers free, basic collections knowledge and skills training for Scottish museums.

Individuals either directly employed by, or volunteering with, a museum organisation in Scotland, who can demonstrate the benefit of the training to their organisation’s collections, are eligible to apply for a place on any of our advertised courses.

All our workshops are currently fully booked. We'll be announcing our next programme later in the year.
