We’re delighted to confirm the dates for our 2022/23 programme of Carbon Literacy for Museums training.

West Midlands Museum Development (WMMD) and Museum Development East Midlands (MDEM) are partnering to deliver several rounds of training, using the Carbon Literacy for Museums Toolkit developed by Museum Development and the Carbon Literacy Trust as part of the national Roots and Branches project.

Over the next twelve months, we’ll deliver:

  • two cohorts for West Midlands museums,
  • one cohort specifically for Trustees* from museums across the Midlands,
  • and one cohort for anyone involved in Industrial Heritage museums** across the Midlands.

The course is made up of four modules:

  • Pre-recorded module will be sent to you a week before the online sessions and lasts 1 hour 30 minutes
  • Zoom session 1 will be a Tuesday morning session lasting 2 hours 30 minutes
  • Zoom sessions 2 and 3 will be held the same week as session 1 on the Thursday morning and afternoon, each session lasting 1 hour 45 minutes
  • It’s important you are able to attend all three of the Zoom modules

Each course is the same and you only need to take part in one cohort.

The dates:

  • West Midlands Cohort 1
    • Pre-recorded module from Tuesday 14 June
    • Online modules Tuesday 21 and Thursday 23 June
  • Trustees Cohort
    • Pre-recorded module from Tuesday 2 August
    • Online modules Tuesday 9 and Thursday 11 August
  • Industrial Heritage Museums Cohort
    • Pre-recorded module from Tuesday 1 November
    • Online modules Tuesday 8 and Thursday 10 November
  • West Midlands Cohort 2
    • Pre-recorded module from Tuesday 7 March 2023
    • Online modules Tuesday 14 and Thursday 16 March 2023

We’ll let you know when each cohort is open for booking.

*West Midlands places will be prioritised to Trustees who are part of our West Midlands Trustees Network. To express interest and learn more, please complete our online expression of interest form.

**We’re grateful for support from Mike Nevell, Industrial Heritage Support Officer for England, for kindly offering his knowledge and enthusiasm to the Industrial Heritage cohort.
