Welcome to SHAREPlus, a new programme of training and development opportunities for museum workers across the East of England. We have designed this exciting new programme by listening to feedback from SHARE participants, and developing ideas with the help of museum professionals in the region.
We will continue to develop the SHAREPlus programme and are keen to hear your ideas for how we can support your development. To contact us to discuss an idea, please email us.
SHAREPlus is for:
- museum staff, trustees, volunteers with some experience of working in the sector
- aspiring museum professionals
- AMA participants
- anyone looking to deepen their experience of working in museums
If you need financial support to attend a SHAREPlus event, please e-mail us. We occasionally offer bursaries to attend conferences and seminars across the UK. We will advertise opportunities via our e-bulletin, and online here.

We will be launching the second round of our leadership skills programme, Changemakers, later this year. The programme will start at Easter 2020 and run for a whole year. Changemakers is open to museum workers across the East of England and places are awarded through an application process. Sign up to receive our e-bulletin and be the first to hear about new opportunities such as this one.
We support a range of regional subject specialist networks that bring together museum workers with shared interests. They are a great way of making connections, finding support, and enhancing your CPD. Networks organise and run many of the events on our training calendar.

Become a Mentor
Accreditation Mentors guide and advise museums without professional staff, in all aspects of museum work. Mentoring a museum is a fantastic way to enhance your CPD – whether working with a museum to write a forward plan, or giving feedback on displaying collections.
