The Inclusive Museum Traineeship Programme is part of a Heritage Lottery-funded initiative to tackle lack of engagement with the museums and heritage sector from people from BME backgrounds. Part of the programme will provide the opportunity for four non-graduates from BME backgrounds to attain an SVQ level 3 in Museums and Galleries Practice, alongside workplace learning. During a 12-month placement in a host museum, either Glasgow Museums or the National Trust for Scotland, Trainees will be supported by a learning bursary and receive mentor support from the lead organisation, Next Step Initiative, whose overall aim is to increase employment and participation from BME groups in the sector. On completion of the programme the trainees will have the combination of a vocational qualification and the confidence of work-readiness.
