GEM: Advanced/Leadership Courses

GEM Advanced/Leadership Courses

GEM has been collaborating with engage (National Association for Gallery Education) on the continuous development and promotion of its Extend Cultural Leadership Programme to include more mid-career museum educators.

In the 2016-17 Extend programme, at least five places will be allocated to colleagues working in the museum sector in England and Wales.

The Extend Leadership programme is open to applicants working in learning and education roles in the arts, museums and libraries, and has been developed in response to the under-representation of learning and education staff in leadership roles within the cultural sector.

The programme enables mid-career professionals to acquire and apply leadership skills, working with a cohort of peers from across England, Wales and Scotland. Through intensive residentials, group projects, and mentoring, participants will explore many aspects of leadership. Participants will also have opportunities to interrogate their current practice, meet with inspiring leaders in the sector, develop their own projects, and plan for the future.

The deadline for applications is Monday 14 March 2016 at 10.00. For more information and details of how to apply, click here.
