ARA’s first Training Programme supports the roll-out of Archive Service Accreditation, with 8 half-day workshops in the English regions aimed at applicants to the scheme. The sessions will introduce the Standard and its supporting guidance, and include some practical exercises to bring its content to life.
The 8 workshops scheduled for 2013/14 are now completed. Two further workshops are planned for 2015, in South East and Northern regions. One-to-one surgeries are available at ARA Conference (email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your slot from 11.30-3.30). Training is also being delivered with the Section for Specialist Repositories on 16 October, and with Business Archives Council at their annual conference. If you have any particular requests for training to support accreditation, do let me know.
