Developing learning advocates in the North West

Developing learning advocates in museums, archives and libraries in the North West was a professional development initiative facilitated by RCMG in partnership with MLA North West.

Aims and objectives

In response to the Museum, Libraries and Archives Council’s initiative Inspiring Learning for All, MLA North West developed a raft of strategies in order to embed the initiative into the region. Amongst these was the development of a group of learning advocates, chosen from practitioners who were already actively engaged in using Inspiring Learning for All and who would act as advocates for it within the region. Post-training the network continued to operate as a learning set, bringing interested parties together and working to develop their practice and role as advocates in the region.
