OCN Level 2 Tour Guide Training Opportunity

Published: 11 August 2021

We are delighted to be working with our colleagues in the Lough Erne Landscape Partnership once again to offer an OCN Level 2 in Tour Guiding this September.

This course is perfect for individuals who have a keen interest and commitment to exploring and promoting the Fermanagh and wider UNESCO Global Geopark landscape and its rich heritage.

This course will be delivered in person (face to face), covid permitting at Fermanagh House, Broadmeadow, Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh. It will run on Monday 6th, 13th, 20th & 27th September 2021 and 4th, 11th October 2021 (assessment days). The cost of the course is £35 per participant.

The Tour Guiding course involves 6 full days of training (10am – 4.30pm) to include research work, as well as presentation skills required to lead a tour group and health & safety considerations. You will learn how to share with others and bring to life the unique and diverse heritage of the Lough Erne Landscape! Some preparation work will also be required outside of class time and a final assessment will involve delivering a short, guided tour to a group.

This bespoke course will be delivered by Travel & Tourism Associates. Upon completion participants will be provided with an accredited qualification as well as a knowledge of how to share the heritage and stories of the wonderful landscape in Fermanagh.

The closing date for expressions of interest is Tuesday 17th August 2021. The expression of interest form is attached for ease and more information regarding the course is available at https://www.lelp.org.uk/tour-guide-training/  Funding is being provided by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, however, applications are welcome from both residents Fermanagh and in the Geopark area in West Cavan.
