Fermanagh and Omagh District Council invite Quotations for the Supply and Delivery of a Co-Ordinated Education Training Programme.

The Marble Arch Caves UNESCO Global Geopark is one of Ireland’s best examples of sustainable tourism. Straddling the border between counties Fermanagh and Cavan the Geopark allows visitors to appreciate the best of what this unspoilt border region has to offer. Jointly managed by both Fermanagh and Omagh District Council and Cavan County Council, the Geopark covers almost 20,000 hectares of public land from the northern shores of Lower Lough Erne in Fermanagh to the southern shores of Lough Oughter in Cavan.

As part of the overall Lough Erne Landscape Partnership (LELP), the Marble Arch Caves UNESCO Global Geopark (MACUGG) have secured funding from the National Lottery Heritage Lottery Fund to deliver a Co-Ordinated Education Training Programme which will enable the creation of a network of ‘Heritage Champions’ by piloting an education training programme where participants complete a core set of guiding modules. With expert instruction participants will be trained on how to become a ‘Heritage Champion’ and on how to guide both locals and visitors that wish to visit and experience the Marble Arch Caves UNESCO Global Geopark.
