More than 50 professional tourist guides in Europe have been accredited by FEG and ENAT as qualified "T-Guides", who are trained to guide persons with learning difficulties at heritage sites.

Since the course was launched in 2016, 55 tourist guides from 8 countries have received a certificate from the specialist Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme offered by FEG, the European Federation of Tourist Guide Associations and ENAT.

The T-Guide course aims to equip tourist guides with the knowledge, skills and competences to ensure a pleasant and rewarding experience for visitors who may not otherwise get the chance to visit museums and other heritage sites.

T-Guides are trained to guide visitors who may be neurodiverse, have early-stage dementia, learning diffocuties, Downs syndrome or other conditions that require some special attention.

Training includes an e-Learning course, self-study, two days of face-to-face instruction/workshops and a practical exercise - organising, carrying out and documenting a guided tour with a group of visitors, including persons in the target group(s) and their friends or carers.
