Writing your Documentation Policy and Putting it into Practice.

Event Date:11 February 2021 2:00 pm — 11 February 2021 3:30pm

This online session will provide an overview on writing an effective documentation policy, and putting it into practice through your Documentation Plan.

Confused about the difference between policies, plans and procedures?

In this bitesize session Sarah Brown, Outreach Officer for Collections Trust, will go through the Accreditation requirements for documentation policy (5.1) and the Spectrum primary procedures (5.2) including Documentation planning, signposting to further guidance and examples online.

With many museums re-engaging with the Accreditation Scheme in April 2021, this is also a great opportunity to consider your areas of improvement, and consider your collections documentation in more detail.

There will also be time for a briefing from our Accreditation Adviser on the restart of the Scheme, and ask any questions you may have about your Accreditation Return. You can ask questions via the chat feed during the session, or submit them in advance to office@southeastmuseums.org.

By booking a place on to a South East Museum Development training event, you are agreeing to the following :

  • To ensure fair distribution, only one representative from each museum can book a place on this training course. Additional bookings from the same museum will go on to a reserve list. Places on this training course will be confirmed by email.
  • That you are either a paid staff, a volunteer or a trustee who works within or with a South East museum or heritage organisation which is in Arts Council England’s Accreditation Scheme (either fully accredited or working towards accreditation). Where this is not applicable (i.e. you are a non-accredited museum), you acknowledge that in the event that training is oversubscribed, priority will be given to museums or heritage organisations in the Arts Council England Accreditation Scheme.
  • It is a condition of receiving the training provided without charge that the evaluation form is completed by the specified deadline in the email notification, unless a paper evaluation is specifically provided on the day of the training session for completion before the end of the session.
