University College London (UCL). Come and explore wellbeing for museum staff with Map (Museums and Participation Network), GEM (Group for Education in Museums) and the National Alliance for Museums, Health and Wellbeing.  As museums face more pressures, we want to start a conversation about staying well at work.  Join us to consider the situation for museum staff and find out how to take care of ourselves and our teams. Register now.

Please note: that places are open to anyone registering with an organisational/institutional email address. We have a few places reserved for freelance/self-employed practitioners, please send us an email before you book a place (priority will be given to those who have attended previous meetings).  If you cannot attend the meeting after you have registered, please let us know so we can pass your place on.

GEM Intermediate Course: Health and Wellbeing

For those already running health and wellbeing provision but are looking for ways to improve or build upon this practice and want to advance your professional development & support wellbeing in your heritage organisation then GEM’s Intermediate Course: Health and Wellbeing might be for you!

The Alliance are working in partnership with GEM as part of their ACE-funded Learning & Sharing Centre project. Health and Wellbeing is one of five GEM intermediate courses that will address the core competencies identified by GEM, to help raise professional standards in the museum, heritage and cultural sector.

The course is aimed at supporting the professional development of mid-career heritage educators involved with health and wellbeing.

GEM says, “Not just one-day workshops!” This course will combine a one-day workshop with a few short activities to be completed prior to and after the workshop, which will reinforce and embed your learning. Working with a passionate peer group, the 6-7-week course will enable participants to reflect on current work to:
• identify and overcome challenges,
• reframe other provision as health and wellbeing programmes,
• and gain inspiration to set up new projects.

The courses will take place in London (27 November 2017) and Manchester (24 January 2018).

Places are limited, so book your place now! For more details please visit the GEM website.
