MDY Training Needs Analysis – Report Findings

Thank you to all those who contributed to our survey on training needs in the region in autumn 2018.

The survey had a strong return rate, with 59 out of the 141 Accredited Museum sites in Yorkshire & Humberside represented in the organisational responses. A summary of the key findings and recommended actions can be found in pages 1-3 of the report here:

An important trend in the results was the prioritisation of a broad and substantial need for support in audience development activity, including audience engagement and participation, using Audience Finder, using the Creative Case for Diversity and Equality Action Planning, and digital content development and delivery. This will inform our planning for the coming year and beyond, with new programmes being offered and signposted.

The challenges facing museums to access training and development activity were also clear, and MDY will be taking steps to support museums in prioritising training and development, and enabling organisations to access opportunities.
