MA consults on Cultural Heritage Blueprint

Patrick Steel, 19.12.2012
Consultation to feed development of a UK-wide workforce action plan
The Museums Association is seeking your views to develop a UK-wide workforce action plan, to be published in 2013.

We aim to bring together the museum sector's workforce plans and initiatives, and work with stakeholders across the cultural sectors on future activities to support workforce development.

The action plan builds on the update to the Cultural Heritage Blueprint.

The update reviews the key workforce issues facing the sector and gives recommendations for change. These recommendations fall into five priority areas:

1. Strengthen leadership and management

2. Develop business, enterprise and entrepreneurial skills

3. Open up entry into the sector and diversify the workforce

4. Commit to Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for staff

5. Develop sector-specific skills
