At GEM, we aim to support and empower our community of colleagues to connect and develop their knowledge and skills to deliver learning.
Learning in museums and heritage sites does not just mean straightforward teaching. From huge events like sleepovers in the galleries and theatrical performances to small-scale community clubs and sessions, from schools and families to older people, from opening the doors to new audiences to giving old ones reasons to return. No two days as a museum educator are the same and the diversity of work our members do is incredible.
GEM offers training, events, advocacy, mentoring, and more to anyone involved in learning in museums, heritage and cultural sites, in the UK and beyond.
