Training

Our training is bespoke and responsive to our clients and their audiences' needs, providing space for knowledge sharing and active learning.

We can offer bespoke training across England and are experienced at working with a range of teams and organisations at a whole host of sites from churches, castles, museums, historic houses, art organisations to landscapes; all with different sized spaces, offers, expertise, and budgets, but all looking for high-quality training. Our favourite part of delivering training is working with so many diverse and exciting organisations, understanding the different challenges we are faced with in the Arts & Heritage Sector, and exploring ways of overcoming these challenges.

Audience Development

Support in understanding what audience development is and how having a plan and a well-thought-out strategy can benefit your site or project and lead to increasing and diversifying your visitors. Within a training session, we can explore various audience development elements to understand your current and potential audiences. The session may include: creative audience consultation approaches, audience research & segmentation tools, and developing an action-focused plan – all intertwined with inspiring examples of excellent audience development projects.   

 

Evaluation Training

Our evaluation training workshops support teams with everything from the basics of why we evaluate – what to ask, how to collect information & evidence and how to put this to good use; through to more detailed consideration of specific methods and understanding common barriers to undertaking meaningful evaluation. We can provide advice in gathering quantitative and qualitative data, fun ways to encourage visitors to participate, and support with putting in place and embedding a robust and realistic plan to undertake evaluation and reflection from the beginning to the end of your project.

 

Interpretation Planning

Ready to refresh or update your exhibition? Looking to go for some funding to develop your interpretation? Or even starting from scratch – and just wondering what interpretation is precisely and what it covers? This session includes an overview of different interpretation types, understanding audiences and meeting their needs, best practice examples and support with deciding on themes, and writing an Interpretation Plan. 

 

Volunteering Programmes

Have you been tasked with developing a volunteer programme at your site? Or have you recently taken on the coordination of a team of volunteers. Or perhaps volunteering has been happening ad-hoc, and you are keen to formalise your programme or extend your programme and offer more flexible volunteer opportunities. We can support all the above, offering knowledge, expertise, and best practice examples.
