Raybel Charters is pleased to be working with the award winning writer and oral historian Rib Davis, who will be delivering some highly resourceful 'virtual oral history training' with them!

Rib is an an accredited trainer in oral history on behalf of the British Library and the Oral History Society.

They have a few places left on the session and are reaching out to anyone interested  who would like to join in.  The training will introduce you to the practice of oral history, guiding you through pre-interview preparation, interviewing techniques, equipment use and post interview essentials such as recording agreements. legal and ethical issues, transcription and archiving.

The training will be in two parts.

Part 1 will be broken down into two afternoon sessions on Tuesday 16th and Friday 19th Feb.  The timing for both sessions is 1.45 - 5.15pm with a 20-minute break in the middle.

Part 2  will be arranged for approximately 6 weeks later, giving a chance for participants to carry out their own interview. We will have interviewees lined up as part of the Raybel heritage research. Or you may have your own local heritage project that you would prefer to carry out an interview for - that's fine too.

If you are interested in signing up to this FREE training, please contact us through social media or email faye@raybelcharters.com and we will issue the training programme and virtual link.

The training is aimed towards adults and young adults aged 14+.

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.
