British Council work globally aims at building trust, understanding and mutuality through Education, Arts and culture. We aim to better understand different and diverse cultures to facilitate greater opportunities, collaborations and skills development among local, regional and international partners.

British Council Cultural Skills Unit, commissioned a skills research in 2016 with the objectives to better understand the skills gaps and shortages in the cultural sector across Zimbabwe, South Africa, Kenya, Ethiopia, and Nigeria, in order to target our efforts and create partnerships to take action.

This research provides evidence-based findings to inform the development of new products and programmes by highlighting the following:

  • Synopsis of the museums and cultural sector in Zimbabwe
  • Skills gaps and shortages affecting the museums and cultural heritage sector in Zimbabwe
  • Current ¬†practices of skills training provision in Zimbabwe.
