Date: Thursday 1st October 2020

Training over two sessions 30 September and 1 October 10.30am-12.30pm

Ensuring interactions are friendly between front facing museum roles and families has never been more important.

About this training

In this virtual training day for front facing museum staff and volunteers from Kids in Museums, we will:

  • learn why family visitors are an important part of your visitor profile
  • gain an understanding of the key concerns families have about visiting museums post-lockdown
  • together come up with ways to tackle common scenarios involving family visitors and COVID-19 restrictions
  • explore how you can use playful and safe ways to interact with families in a way that is relevant to your site.

This virtual training session will be delivered over two half day sessions (two hours with a short break).  The sessions will be delivered with consultant Sarah Shaw, former National Family Interpretation Manager for English Heritage. In this role she implemented a family friendly training and development programme for all front facing staff and volunteers across the organisation.
