Archive Pace Setter Scheme

The following from TNA's second edition of online magazine Archive Sector Update may be of interest to Scottish based archivists:

The Archive Pace Setter scheme was officially launched on 1 October. The programme aims to promote and celebrate innovation within the UK archive sector and will run until 2013. Led by the National Council on Archives (in partnership with CyMAL, MLA, The National Archives, the Scottish Council on Archives and the Society of Archivists), the Archive Pace Setter Scheme helps organisations working with archives to receive recognition for innovative project work. In addition to exclusive use of the branding, successful applicants will become part of a network providing access to various workforce development opportunities.

During the summer a wide range of organisations were represented at introductory sessions held around the country, and many have already expressed interest in becoming an Archive Pace Setter. Applications are encouraged from all types of archive services across the UK. If you would like to receive future updates specifically about the scheme, please email Louise Ray at
