Accreditation Mentors are experienced professionals in the sector, who help smaller museums achieve and retain Accreditation.
They do this by supporting those museums to develop Accreditation applications and returns.
To meet the requirements of Accreditation, all museums must have access to professional advice and one way for volunteer-run museums to achieve this is to appoint an Accreditation Mentor.
