GEM’s Intermediate Courses

Are you finding the training you need to sharpen and broaden your skills as a heritage learning professional? GEM has developed a series of intermediate courses, aimed at supporting the professional development of mid-career heritage professionals.

These courses address core competencies identified by GEM, and help to raise professional standards in the sector.

Each course begins about one week before a workshop with a training needs analysis, some reading and a few short activities to be completed prior to the workshop. The workshops include time for reflection, networking and the building of a peer support group. After the workshops there are follow-up activities and support that help to reinforce and embed your learning. On satisfactory completion of each course, participants are awarded a certificate.

What can you expect to take away from these courses?   


Upcoming Course – Heritage Interpretation
6-week virtual course

When & where is it?

This virtual course will take place over 6-weeks and will be run online through a series of virtual lectures, ‘at home’ activities, and a participatory discussion forum. Participants are highly encouraged to take part in the live lectures, but there will also be a possibility to engage with the recorded sessions afterwards.

The course will be a mix of discussion and sharing of perspectives and experiences, practical working individually and in small online groups and some presentation of theory by the course director.

The virtual lectures will begin on 3rd June and take place every Wednesday until 8th July at 3pm.

More information and booking forms available here.
