Event description

Description

Description:

Getting Loan Ready is a unique four-day, in-depth training programme focused on borrowing. Generously supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the training is free of charge and there are travel and accommodation bursaries available for all delegates.

The training is designed for people working or volunteering within the museum and heritage sector who would like to develop their knowledge and understanding of the loans process so that their organisations will be better able to borrow from national collections in future.

How to apply:

Places are limited to 10 delegates. Anyone can register their interest via this Eventbrite page, and then 10 places will be assigned by the British Museum. Please be prepared to explain how you feel you and your organisation will benefit from taking part in the training.

As the training has so far only been delivered in England, museum colleagues applying from Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland will be prioritised.

All expressions of interest must be received by 15 November 2017.

Important Note:

The British Museum’s National Partnerships skills sharing activity is grant funded to allow us to offer free training for museum staff for non-commercial use. These sessions are available only to those working in a paid or volunteer role in museums, galleries and heritage organisations with collections.

We regret that the following are not eligible to apply for this training:

  • students / those on study placements
  • independent consultants
  • conservation studios
  • those working or volunteering at the British Museum

Details and timings:

The four day residential course will be held at the British Museum from 23rd - 26th January 2018.

The programme will include sessions on:

  • Knowing what to borrow
  • Requesting a loan
  • Budgeting and costs
  • Facilities and security
  • Agreements and insurance
  • Making the loan happen

Travel and accommodation will be arranged for all delegates as part of the bursary offer, to ensure there are no financial barriers to participation.

This training programme is part of the British Museum’s National Partnerships skills sharing activity, and has been made possible through the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund.
