As part of the Ancient Egypt and East Asia National Programme, we are offering free basic collections knowledge and skills training for Scottish Museums.

Supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund and The Collections Fund - delivered by the Museums Association, we will offer training, support and guidance on working with ancient Egyptian and East Asian collections, audience development and museum practice.

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.  Priority will be given to partners of the Ancient Egypt and East Asia National Programme.

National Museums Scotland also offers basic collections skills and knowledge training for Scottish Museums through the National Training Programme.

Ancient Egypt and East Asia National Programme

The Ancient Egypt and East Asia National Programme was a two year project working with partner museums across Scotland to discover and reveal new and interesting stories about their ancient Egyptian, Chinese, Japanese and Korean collections.

Training and guidance for museums

We can provide expert advice on collections, their identification, care and management. We also offer collections and skills training to museums in Scotland.
