Lough Erne Landscape Partnership (LELP), in partnership with the Marble Arch Caves UNESCO Global Geopark (MACUGG), are delighted to invite applications for participation in two exciting heritage training courses.

Supported through funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Community Foundation NI and Fermanagh and Omagh District Council we are hosting 2 courses to provide training in Oral Skills for Story Telling and Tour Guiding skills. Both courses will provide participants with the skills and knowledge to share with others the rich heritage of the Lough Erne region. During the courses you will learn how to share with others and bring to life the unique and diverse cultural, natural and built heritage of the Lough Erne Landscape.

The bespoke courses will be delivered by Travel & Tourism Associates and delivered virtually whilst Covid restrictions apply. Modules will cover the rich heritage of the Lough Erne region and will not only provide participants with an accredited qualification but also a knowledge of how to share the heritage and stories of the wonderful landscape in Fermanagh.

Spaces for each course are limited and applicants can apply to take both courses. If you are applying to both courses, you will be expected to complete two separate Expression of Interest forms. For further information, and how to apply follow the links below:
