Llysgennad Eryri: A new ambassador programme to enhance the learning experience of Eryri’s Special Qualities
A new ambassador scheme celebrating the National Park’s Special Qualities was launched on the 26th of November.
Llysgennad Eryri has been developed for the local tourism industry, but offers high quality training to anyone who wishes to learn more about what makes Eryri exceptional. From our historic landscapes to the vibrancy of the Welsh language the on-line training programme will offer something for everyone. The aim is for the information to be shared widely, encouraging a fuller understanding of the entire area.
The Snowdonia National Park Authority has worked in partnership with other local authorities as part of the North Wales Ambassador Scheme, including Denbighshire Council, Conwy County Borough Council, Flintshire Council and Gwynedd Council. All authorities will have their own specific schemes whilst being co-promoted to reach a maximum audience.
Under the North Wales Ambassador Scheme banner, the Llysgennad Eryri Ambassador programme includes 12 online training modules that reflect the Park’s Special Qualities. The modules vary from original work to factual content, much of which has been contributed by local experts across the region.
A bronze, silver and gold accreditation will be awarded to businesses dependent on how many modules are completed.
Registration for the Llysgennad Eryri Ambassador scheme is now open.
