Skills For the Future

Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) Skills for the Future - Trainee Education Officer Programme.

The HLF funded 'Skills for the Future' Project is across all the Oxford University Museums and Collections (OUMC). This includes the Ashmolean Museum, Pitt Rivers, Natural History Museum, Museum of the History of Science, Joint Museums Education Service (Volunteers and Outreach) and Botanic Garden and Arboretum.

The aim of the project is to give opportunities for individuals to become trainees and learn along side the Education Departments of the OUMC. At the end of the 12 months traineeship, the trainees should have experienced 'on the job' work life as an Education Officer and also have a portfolio which will help them progress in the area of Museum Education.


For additional information on the current trainees please have a look at @SkillsOUMC or check out their blog!
