Culture & Art
Museums and Art Galleries
The regions museums are popular with school parties and the national museums and other larger museums in the region have dedicated education departments which provide services to schools and other groups and often provide good opportunities for graduate employment.
Some university museum courses include a museum education module which can be studied separately to gain some experience in the field and many of the larger galleries or museums have developed in-house training programmes for educators. The 'Engage' website listed below has a database of training opportunities.
Museum management is often open to graduates who have studied any discipline but a keen interest in the type of museum you are looking to work is often a must. Many institutions offer modules on Art's Management which can run alongside degrees in various disciplines such as the Arts, Media and Business.
