Lynne TeatherIt is my great pleasure to welcome you to the International Council of Training of Personnel (ICTOP) web platform. As the first of the ICOM International Committees (formed in 1968), ICTOP is pleased to speak to its decades long contribution to the professional development of museums and heritage and the educational preparation of professionals working around the world.


The Committee publishes the International Directory of Museum Training as well as a newsletter twice a year and it organises an annual meeting. ICTOP also acts as an advisor for the establishment of syllabi for personnel training and works closely with other ICOM Committees to achieve its goals.


On our site you will find news of our work, stories about our mission, research, resources and members.We invite you to ‘join in’ and explore some helpful tools and resources to which your contributions and comments are welcome.


Please feel free to subscribe to our e-newsletter and connect with us on social media.
