Tourism training & advice

We offer some great training sessions. We also work with partners who offer training, advice and support.

Here we will try and list as many as we can that have online sessions and videos. Some are from heritage, arts, or other sector organisations. We've included any that we think might help you welcome visitors, tell the story of your church or promote what you are doing. They are in no particular order to please scroll through.

Grab a coffee, sit back and explore the possibilities.

2021 online training sessions

We are organising fortnightly tourism training sessions via Zoom, throughout 2021.

They will include our core sessions covering welcome, interpretation, publicity, social media, the effects of visitors and more. They will also feature our partners, including Ecclesiastical Insurance, Caring for God's Acre and others.
