About the Event

Hosted by Collections Trust, this session is suitable for those new to the Spectrum standard or in need of a refresher - this online session will offer a bitesize introduction.

We will discuss how a Spectrum 5.0 procedure works, how the standard might be applied within your own organisation and briefly introduce the primary procedures required for Accreditation. We will also look at the difference and relationship between policies, procedures, and plans.

There will be opportunities to ask questions throughout as well as to submit any in advance.

By the end of the session, delegates will:

• Understand what the Spectrum standard is, and how it might be applied within their museum.

• Understand the role of the Spectrum standard in relation to museum Accreditation.

• Understand the difference and relationship between policies, procedures, and plans.

• Know where to find more information and guidance.

Before the session:

• Read the Spectrum 5.0 introduction –

• Think about how you do things in your museum, referring to your in-house procedural manual if you have access to it. You might also find it useful to have it with you to refer to during the session.
