An introduction to Spectrum 5.0 for Accreditation

Arrival from 10am Session runs 10:15am – 3:30pm

This session, led by Sarah Brown (Collections Trust), will focus on the documentation and information required for accountability and the museum Accreditation standard requirement 5.2. Together we will review the latest Spectrum 5.0 primary procedures, with opportunities to reflect on how they are approached by your organisation and develop actions for improvement. Sarah will also highlight the key changes to the standard.

Delegates will be encouraged to participate through discussions and activities, and there will be plenty of opportunity for questions throughout.

We request that attendees bring examples of their organisation’s documentation procedures and plan, to share and discuss during the day.

The workshop will cover:

  • An overview of Spectrum 5, including key changes.
  • The primary procedures required for Museum Accreditation and accountability.
  • What is a documentation backlog?
  • How can we prevent documentation backlogs?
  • The focus of the workshop will be the primary procedures, but there will be an opportunity for delegates to ask about any of the 21 procedures if needed.
