AIM Assessment
End-point assessments for the creative and cultural industries

Registrar (Creative and Cultural) EPA

The Registrar (creative and cultural) EPA is the end-point assessment for this Level 6 standard.

A Registrar operates behind the scenes to enable access and enjoyment of cultural heritage by public and other audiences now and in the future.  They may work within a museum, art gallery or similar organisation whether public or private which has a stated remit to: promote, collect, manage, preserve, interpret and/or display works of art, historic stories, customs, practices, places, artistic expressions, values, specimens and artefacts of unique and often irreplaceable artistic, historic, cultural or scientific importance, commonly referred to as collections or objects.

Registrars may work alone or in teams in a fast paced, busy environment with other, predominantly, internal departments which may include art handling, conservation, exhibitions, photographic, legal, technicians, sales and curatorial. They also liaise with other external sector professionals eg, technical consultants, artists, insurance brokers, fabricators and an international network of transport agents.
