The Cultural Heritage Centre for Asia and the Pacific trainers are non-Indigenous and deliver the training through a partnership between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.
Deakin University's Cultural Heritage Centre for Asia and the Pacific (CHCAP) has five academic staff that provide teaching in the Cultural Heritage and Museum Studies program:
- Associate Professor Dr Andrea Witcomb - Director of CHCAP
- Dr Linda Young - Senior Lecturer and Course Director
- Dr Jonathon Sweet
- Dr Steven Cooke
- Ms Kristal Buckley
All teaching staff have post-graduate qualifications in cultural heritage and museum studies and significant teaching experience - the qualifications and areas of expertise of staff can be viewed on the website. The teaching staff also have significant industry experience in their areas of expertise.
CHCAP offers post-graduate courses in cultural heritage and museum studies, as well as Higher Degrees by Research (MA, PhD). Many of the course modules are adaptable to training contexts, and CHCAP can tailor training for client organisations by arrangement. Coursework is provided at the Melbourne campus (Burwood) and on-line. Specialist courses in the field have also been provided, including international field schools and in partnership with overseas institutions. While staff do not generally deliver to exclusive Indigenous groups, this can be considered for tailored or specialist training.
While Indigenous students are enrolled in current CHCAP programs, CHCAP staff have not delivered cultural heritage management training exclusively to an Indigenous group within the last twelve months (valid at April 2013).
