Mortice provides bespoke training and workshops to museum professionals. Our network, research and collaboration within the sector ensures that we provide relevant, thoughtful and training to help professionals and institutions to create a sustainable and accessible environment.
Our training sessions brings together relevant expertise to cater for the specificity of each institution or group and help them achieve what they want to achieve. Through our understanding of the opportunities, challenges and people within the sector, we are able to shape our training sessions to the needs of the individuals, institution and the sector.
We offer a wide range of workshops and training sessions on topics such as: Re-opening Support, Contract Support, Effective Team Working and Collections Care. We are keen to collaborate with institutions and organisations in order to provide training that will most benefit our clients.
This autumn we are running a series of training sessions on Sustainability aimed at those who are engaged with the built environment in the Cultural Sector. We feel that the built environment is often omitted from conversations about sustainability and museums, neglecting an integral aspect of the cultural sector which has a central role to play in making the sector, society and the environment healthier and more resilient. The Series will be supporting the Cultural Sector to deliver effective change in building operation for organisations looking to produce thoughtful, robust and creative solutions.
