Abstract

The British Museum hosts an annual International Training Programme (ITP) to train heritage professionals from around the world on various aspects of museum operation. To foster continued learning and strengthen the global network of alumni, the ITP team desired to establish a mentoring programme. Through surveys and interviews of museum staff and ITP alumni, the IQP team confirmed interest in the mentoring programme, established the roles of mentors, and determined key training areas. The team planned a week-long training session and built materials and activities. Finally, the team set up an evaluation system for continuous improvement of the programme.
