The Heritage Trades and Professional Training Working Group is comprised of:
Coordinator: Mary Knaggs (contact Mary)
Sarah Jane Brazil
This Working Group has been established for three years from 2013-2016 to address an action in the Australia ICOMOS Strategic Plan. There are Australia ICOMOS member representatives on the Working Group from nearly all states and territories and an agreement to coordinate with a similar initiative by ICOMOS NZ.
The aim of the working group is to “work to ensure best-practice heritage components are included in tertiary and education sector programmes”.
The priority action for the working group is to “monitor outcomes of the Heritage Trades & Professional Training Report September 2010 prepared for the Heritage Chairs and Officials of Australia and NZ with particular reference to skills training in heritage-related trades and pursue opportunities to advise decision makers”.
Please contact the Working Group Coordinator Mary Knaggs if you require further information.
