Museum Accreditation Workshops 2022/23

May 5, 2022

Museum Development East Midlands is providing Accreditation refresher workshops for museums.

These interactive online workshops are open to all museums across the region

Each refresher session will provide museums with:

  • An overview of key topics
  • Top tips for meeting this area of the Accreditation standard
  • Opportunities to ask questions and discuss issues
  • Signposting and links to helpful resources
  • Networking and sharing with museums from across all regions

Our aim is for participants to leave the sessions with increased knowledge and understanding of the topic plus the confidence to implement this area of the Museum Accreditation standard and support a successful Accreditation application or Accreditation return.

Sessions will be led by Heather Lomas, Accreditation Adviser, and guest facilitators.


Please follow the links below to book for the individual workshops:
