How do I become a Stepping Stones for Tourism Facilitator?
Before being trained as Stepping Stones facilitators, people are expected to have extensive prior experience in related areas of tourism, land management, heritage management and enterprise development. They also must have proven experience and aptitude in facilitation or group leadership practice, particularly with Indigenous groups. Five days professional development with additional in-service experience with Stepping Stones workshops is required to become a licensed Stepping Stones for Tourism facilitator.
Training is also available for local community members to become Stepping Stones for Tourism coordinators. This is a role that equips local community members with additional individual skills to lead, monitor and coordinate tourism activities in their community, using the Stepping Stones for Tourism process.
