Application

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to research and critically analyse specialised information on cultural and heritage environments to develop interpretive themes and messages. It highlights the need for ongoing research to update and expand knowledge.

This unit applies across many industry sectors and has particular application to guides who work in cultural centres, museums, galleries or historic sites, or who conduct tours in regions with strong cultural and heritage significance. In this context, guides work independently to research and prepare interpretive content.

No occupational licensing, certification or specific legislative requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
