IO1 - Methodological Guide of the New Competences in the Rural Heritage Interpretation: 

Material for teachers, trainers and educators of formal and non-formal vocational training, which includes two different main parts:


It is the Curriculum to organise and describe the new professional competences aimed at training specialist interpreters in European rural heritage. It will include several competence units with the development of the professional profile and the corresponding curricular elements (objectives, final skills, evaluation criteria, content program, etc.). It will include quite new aspects in some professional families such as: the European dimension of cultural heritage, popular cultural manifestations, intangible heritage, the valorisation of local crafts and products, cultural diversity in Europe’s rural area and intercultural and intergenerational exchange, among others.


Innovative pedagogical techniques and methodologies, based on active and emotional methods, which place the student at the centre of the process and make him the protagonist of discoveries and experiences, instead of only receivers of information. In addition, they will be based on the use of heritage interpretation techniques in the teaching-learning process, as the best way to train the future professionals in the use of this method.


The guide will also include examples of good practices with European experiences and actions for the integration of new competences to complement the existing training offer in European countries, especially those of the partnership.


IO2 - Structured Training Course

Modular manual to help train teachers by providing resources on the transmission of European rural heritage and its sustainable use when training future professionals in tourism or environmental education.


It is a material for teachers, trainers and educators that consists on learning modules about the topics related to rural cultural heritage as well as the concept and framework of European heritage, essential to raise awareness about the importance of our common European heritage. It will also include examples and practical experiences at European level: the greatest possible diversity of elements of heritage interest from different regions of Europe, especially from the countries of the project association, and a block on practical interpretive projects.


Therefore, it tries to provide a global training for teachers on the enormous rural heritage of Europe, trying to bring together the hidden heritage of the different European rural areas and including the European dimension, contributing to the internationalization of VET and the improvement of its quality.

IO3 - "Rural Heritage" Training Platform

E-Learning platform (MOODLE-type) to inform and offer learning about rural heritage interpretation to students and the general public, trying to promote professionalization and quality youth work in the areas rural areas, increasing the competitiveness of the tourism sector and economic activities around rural heritage, while helping to improve digital skills.


It includes an online course for lifelong learning designed specifically for tourism professionals, students and the rural population, which will be available with open registration for anyone who is interested in it, during the project, but also after its conclusion.


In addition, this platform will contribute to the promotion of competences considered by the EU as keys for lifelong learning, active citizenship and employment, such as the competence of learning to learn, social and civic competences or digital competences.


In addition, the ICT platform will incorporate communication tools and database with relevant information on the exploitation and use of rural heritage (lists of companies and other entities in the rural tourism sector) and will integrate social networks and multimedia tools to create a connected community user. The platform will also allow the inclusion of links to interesting, educational or heritage-related platforms, among others: Open Education Europe portal, Europeana portal, Heritage Interpretation Association website, etc.
