The British Museum, looking across the central great hall

The Museum Futures Summit explored the impact and key learning outcomes of paid entry-level training programmes – including traineeships, apprenticeships, fellowships, and Kickstart placements – designed to increase representation and accessibility within the cultural heritage sector workforce.

Having previously carried out an evaluation of the Creative Producers programme at Somerset House, I was invited to participate in an online summit to celebrate and learn from ten years of Heritage Fund Skills for the Future programming, which includes Museum Futures as well as dozens of traineeships across the UK.

The event featured 38 speakers from over 20 organisations, including current and former trainees, as well as staff working to develop and deliver training programmes.
