The Learning Programme will help arts and cultural organisations use their creativity and innovative flair to engage in public service commissioning, win contracts and deliver great outcomes.
It is aimed at middle and senior managers in arts organisations, museums and library services, including those responsible for developing new funding streams and winning contracts. Delivered in two phases, it will help you build the knowledge and skills you need to engage with public service commissioning, and demonstrate the evidence commissioners need of your impact on people and places.
Arts Council England’s support means that the programme is competitively priced, with a further discount if you book now for both phases, to help you get maximum benefit. This means that the 4 day programme is just £240 (£160 for organisations with annual turnover less than £25,000).
