Hi! I’m Andrew Lawton and this is my blog. I am a trainee Biological curator at the Manchester Museum undertaking a twelve month HLF traineeship in Biological curation. Hopefully this blog will enable me to offer a reflection on some of the experiences and opportunities available to me during my traineeship; and I hope that you will enjoy reading about them. I hope that through the traineeship many important skills and insights will be gained into the profession; and I’ll be in a strong position to apply for a job after it’s conclusion. That’s the plan anyway! So please come with me on this journey and I promise I’ll try not to say anything so cliched as that in my blog posts (well I’ll try not to anyway!)
