One of the core objectives of the British Chinese Heritage Centre is to train interns and volunteers with the skills that would be necessary and helpful to become involved in the main tasks of the projects. The training sessions have covered some different topics bringing in experts from various fields. All the areas that were covered by training had direct relevance to aspects that those working with the project would undertake, such as oral history training, video editing, an introduction to content management systems, research methods, and graphical representation of the workforce. Recently we have also welcomed training sessions from experts at History Pin, London Metropolitan Archives, the National Army Museum and Dragonpage to deliver insightful sessions for our volunteers. As part of the training sessions, we have also offered volunteers educational visits to exhibitions at the Victoria and Albert Museum and talks at the British Library.We hope that by bringing people together we have passed information to generations and communities and given our volunteers useful skills that they can utilise on this project and within their career.
Training workshops are for project volunteers only.
