As support to all museums Working Towards Accreditation, MDEM are delivering a series of support sessions, covering all aspects of the Museum Accreditation scheme, enabling you to understand what the museum is doing well, where you may have development areas and how to develop a plan to ensure you make a successful Museum Accreditation application.
The sessions will be delivered via Zoom and there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions, access resources and network with museums who are also working towards Museum Accreditation. The sessions are:
