Museums Association launches Transformers Influencers training scheme for 2018-19
POSTED 16 May 2018 . BY Tom Anstey
The Museums Association (MA) is set to launch the latest round of its Transformers Influence programme – a scheme designed to help people in the sector harness the social power of museums to develop active partnerships within their communities.

Accepting applications from 5 June, the training programme will take place over three separate days, and is open to museum staff, freelancers and volunteers in Britain.

Over the first two days, the training will be applied to leading self and impacting others. The final day will see participants reflect on their previous learning. This year's applications follow a pilot year in 2017, when the MA launched the Influence part of its wider Transformers scheme, which helps people in the sector change the way they work for the better.

"This refined version of the Influence programme will support participants to increase their personal influence and the social impact of their work," said the MA’s inclusion manager, Jess Turtle.

"Museums have an important role to play in a fast changing world and we are seeking committed and passionate individuals to join an internationally renowned network responding creatively to these changes."

Applications for Transformers Influence will close on 17 July, with Gearing up for Change taking place on either 19 or 26 September and Impacting Others on 3 or 5 December. The wrap events are set for 6 or 13 March next year.
