Who can apply for a Leonardo Trainer Exchange?

by Libby Urquhart on Mon 14 Feb 2011 12:20 GMT

In order to qualify to go on an exchange, we need to be certain that you fit within this broad range of categories. If you can answer yes to any of the following questions, then the answer is YOU! 1. Do you personally deliver any kind of training? Remember, this need not be in a college or academic institution but could be to the general public, groups, individuals or one to one training to colleagues or staff within your own organisation. 2. Do you manage staff within your organisation, in terms of their personal development? 3. Do you advise on career development? For example, do you have any sort of role in telling young people about careers in Cultural or Natural Heritage Management? 4. The programme is open to all who are involved in the design, delivery or implementation of training or careers guidance in either formal or informal situations.

View Article What is CHIST? What are its aims?

by Libby Urquhart on Mon 14 Feb 2011 12:20 GMT

CHIST stands for Cultural Heritage Interpretation and Sustainable Tourism and seeks to give those who work in the field of Scottish Heritage Interpretation and Tourism an idea of what is being done abroad in their field, and the inspiration to apply new methods at home that work well abroad. CHIST is sponsored by the ‘Leonardo da Vinci’ programme, which is concerned first and foremost with vocational training. In Leonardo’s words, the exchanges aim to provide ‘opportunities for those involved in the design, delivery or implementation of training or careers guidance to undertake visits to partner organisations to exchange experience and best practice.’ So, in other words, CHIST wants to send those working in the Scottish Heritage Interpretation and Tourism sectors abroad to learn from, and share ideas with their European partners.
