Interpretive guide trainer course for IE CIGs
This three-day course is designed for IE members having successfully completed the five-day CIG guide course as IE Certified Interpretive Guides (CIGs) and who now wish to become IE Certified Interpretive Guide Trainers (CIGTs).
It offers reflection, theory and practical teaching exercises on contemporary learning approaches, and heritage interpretation. Finally participants go through a detailed step-by-step analysis on how to run the IE Interpretive Guides course. This covers practical issues, such as planning and promoting the course, stakeholder analysis, securing quality criteria, crisis management, etc.
To be certified, participants must:
- perform a teaching session that is video-taped and sent to an IE review team to be assessed
- present a peer-review exercise
- deliver a homework task.
After successful completing this course, certified guide trainers are registered by Interpret Europe and authorised to run the IE guide course on their own. They are fully responsible for their guide courses including certification and do not need to pay any fees to Interpret Europe.
