Milan in 2016
Looking forward to seeing everyone in Milan this year. It's going to be a great conference. We have a wonderful agenda planned.
It 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.
On this 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 join ICTOP through ICOM, subscribe to our e-newsletter and connect with us on social media. And you will find a lot of information about the world of museums on my Facebook page. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE ==>
The ICTOP Committee organizes an annual meeting in various locations in the world in an attempt to represent the diverse international community. This year we will be offering an exciting program at the ICOM Triennial in Milan, where we will have meetings, excursions and exciting events to meet colleagues and discuss contemporary issues (To register). In addition, we also offer special workshops through collaborations with other international and local professional bodies. The committee also maintains a web site as a means of offering deep information and networking: it includes reports on past events and reports, papers and conferences, as well as contemporary issues and news. The committee also advises on matters related to professional development such as guidance on jobs, curriculum, salaries and human resources and case studies of personnel training; we have worked closely with other ICOM Committees (such as Conservation) on these goals.
Although in the past, ICTOP published an International Directory of Museum Training every few years, we now seek to bring this reporting to the web, given the fast changing world of professional development offerings, which makes it nearly impossible to have a firm listing for publication. As well we hope to publish a newsletter for members during the year as well as bring news to the website.
You must join ICOM to join the special committee of ICTOP. By joining ICOM you will integrate the world museum community and take part in the debates, the scientific exchanges and in the reflection about the museum future.
