Part of the traineeship is to begin my Associateship of the Museums Association (AMA). This is to identify what you want/need to learn in order to successfully progress your early career in museums. There is of course more to it but you can read all about it if you follow the above link. I have just started. It’s fun but challenging to imagine where I want to be in five years in terms of career and development. There are several aspects to the AMA (a plan, a journal, a project, etc.). These are ongoing throughout the traineeship and continue afterwards.
