Over the last 17 years the ITP has welcomed 353 museum professionals from 60 countries to the UK for a six week intensive training on museum practice, at the British Museum and UK partner venues. Those who attend the programme become a part of the ITP network and continue to work on projects with each other, the British Museum and UK partner venues.

ITP welcomes a wide range of roles, from curators and conservators to managers and educators. Fellows are either in the early and middle stages of their careers, or in positions on influence and able to use their experience to develop colleagues back home. All are passionate about international collaboration.
