GEM Foundation Course: Museum Learning

GEM’s pilot foundation course on museum learning ran successfully from October to December 2014, with an extension into 2015 for participants to complete their work-based assignments.  All participants received mentoring and reflected on their professional development.  We are now planning a celebration in March.

GEM will run the next foundation course in the autumn of 2015.  It will be aimed at those at the beginning of their museum education career, either working or substantially volunteering in the heritage sector.  The focus of the course is on developing skills in planning and delivering learning programmes for children, young people, families and adults.  There is an emphasis on reflective practice and continuing professional development.

If you are interested in applying for the course or in mentoring participants, please contact the GEM office.
