If there are no appropriately qualified professional staff working at a museum or heritage site, then Museum Mentors can fulfil the role instead.
In order to meet the requirements of the Accreditation Scheme, museums must have access to appropriately qualified professional staff. A Museum Mentor advises and supports a museum without professional staff to achieve and maintain the Accreditation Standard.
The qualifications required to be a Museum Mentor are defined in the Accreditation Standard. ACE have a free handbook available to download, entitled ‘Museum Mentor Handbook’, download it here.
