Museums and galleries act to attract ethnic staff

The
Museums Association has launched a training scheme to attract more ethnic
minorities to work in museums and galleries.

Four
institutions around the country are offering traineeships for ethnic minorities
in a bid to improve diversity among the workforce.

The
scheme will enable students to spend two years taking a postgraduate course in
museum studies, gaining valuable work experience.

After
their studies the individuals will be invited to apply for permanent jobs.

The
four traineeships will be hosted at:


Bristol Museums and Art Gallery


Herbert Art Gallery and Museum


Harris Museum and Art Gallery


Wolverhampton Art Gallery
