UCL teams with British Council to launch Museum Training School
25 March 2014
UCL has teamed with the British Council to launch the Museum Training School (MTS). Commencing with a summer school in London in August 2014, MTS will provide arts and heritage professionals from around the world with the skills and knowledge necessary to increase the sustainability and growth of museums and galleries.
Museums and galleries around the world are experiencing unprecedented growth and rapid change. These changes accelerate the need to train a new generation of museum leaders. MTS responds to this need.
UCL and the British Council will use their world-class collections, resources and expertise to provide a unique learning experience with an international approach and outlook. The four courses currently on offer are:
· How to build local, national and international partnerships
· How to develop exhibitions
· How to develop a schools and learning programme
· How to develop community engagement programmes
In addition to the hands-on teaching led by innovative specialists in the field, the alumni of the Museum Training School will join a global network of museum and gallery leaders.
