Here is a list of templates to assist you to complete your accreditation application and more importantly improve standards within your museum. This list will be added to when new templates are available.

Please note that while Arts Council England are not providing many templates for museums, NIMC recognises that the usefulness of such documents to assist you to develop your policies and plans.

If you choose to use these templates, your final document must show that the template has been targetted specifically to your museum and used as a tool for development.

If you have completed any plans or policies you would like to share with the sector please send a copy to NIMC and we will upload it onto our website.
