Date: Wednesday 5th May 2021

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

About this training
In this virtual training for front facing museum staff and volunteers, 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

The session 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.

Take a look at the schedule.
