Learning Programme

From July 2015 to spring 2016, the Learning Programme will be rolled out across England. If you are a middle or senior manager in an arts organisation, museum or library service, the first two phases of the programme are for you. It will help you use your creativity and innovative flair to:

  • engage in public service commissioning
  • win contracts
  • deliver great outcomes.

Delivered through two phases, a discount is available to those booking onto both.

Phase 1

This two day session is designed to help you understand and prepare to engage in commissioning and covers awareness-raising, knowledge and skills development. The session is delivered by Linden Rowley.

Phase 2

The second two-day session aims to help you understand how to demonstrate the impact of arts and cultural activities on public service outcomes and is delivered by Andrew Holden, Activist.
