The centre offers specialised expert workshops both within the University and externally on an international scale. In the past we have secured European Science Foundation funding to allow GIS workshops to be held at Queen's. Funding for other workshops reflecting state-of the art activity in Digital Humanities has been made possible through grants from bodies such as AHRC, JISC and The British Academy.
National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) Placements
The unit has an award winning training programme providing instruction on many aspects of digitisation. We work alongside government bodies and promote community outreach. The Centre offers NVQ level II and III work placement experience training opportunities to eligible candidates. We have been offering positions to NVQ Trainees since 1996 and currently have a number on placement with us. Whilst with us trainees learn many new skills that contribute to their NVQ qualification.
