This research project grew out of a vocational education development project at the Centre for the Study of Cultural Policy at the University of Warwick, supported by the University of Warwick Strategic Group for Continuing Vocational Education. The aim of the project was to research and develop professional development and vocational training for those working in the cultural sector. Research focused initially on the lack of opportunities for managerial training in the sector. Following consultation with policy makers, managers and practitioners, a pilot programme of four seminars took place in the summer of 1998. The aim of the seminar programme was to provide an opportunity to discuss the concepts and strategies which lie behind and inform everyday operational issues. Seminars were repeated in both London and Birmingham with an overall attendance of just over a hundred delegates.
