Hallmarks Learning

AIMís development programmes support people who work in or with museums, with the aim of helping heritage organisations prosper.

The AIM Hallmarks Museum Leaders Programme provides practical tools, useful insights and a supportive peer network to equip museum directors to realise the full potential of their organisations. 

The AIM Hallmarks Enablers Programme is for people who support museums through their work, for example through Museum Development or as independent consultants. It aims to equip participants to support organisations more effectively.

Both programmes are led by Ruth Lesirge and Hilary Barnard, highly experienced consultants with a strong track record of supporting chief executives from across the voluntary sector. The programme is built around a series of intensive, highly interactive short residentials and draws on the experience of leading museum directors, charity chief executives and other leaders from the broader cultural and charity sectors.

There are 5 residentials in the Leaders programme and 4 in the Enablers programme, each spread over 7 months, starting in Spring 2017.

The programmes are designed to be as accessible as possible and we ask for a contribution of only £350 for the Leaders programme and £300 for the Enablers programme, with some travel support and bursaries available for people who can demonstrate need.

There are 12 places on each of the programmes for people working in or for museums in England, supported by Arts Council England. There are 2 places for museum leaders working in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland, supported by AIM. If you work in a museum development role in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland and are interested in the Enablers programme, please contact us to discuss the possibility of a self-funded place.

Applications are now open and close on Monday 16 January at 9am. Download the application form and find out more about how to apply at the bottom of this page.
