For individuals and for groups
There are a number of courses currently available, organised jointly by National Life Stories at the British Library and the Oral History Society.
On each training course page you will find a course programme, venue details, fee information and (if places are available) an option to book online.
Online and in-person training
Oral History training courses are being delivered online by video call and in-person at the British Library and other training venues around the UK.
If you would like more information about our oral history training courses please email the Training Administrator.
Do you need training for a group?
If you need training for a group, rather than for an individual, take a look at our tailored courses. A course tailored to the needs of your project and based on the ‘Introduction to Oral History’ course can be arranged.
The maximum number of attendees is twelve. An accredited trainer will work with you to organise the training programme, and will deliver the course either online or in-person at a venue you have booked.
Please note that for in-person training we will be continuing with some social distancing measures, and will need to find out more about the training venue before arranging an in-person course.
The basic cost for Tailored Training is £460 per full day plus the trainer’s expenses.
If you would like to explore this option please see the Tailored Training page for further details.
Questions about training opportunities with the OHS?
For all questions relating to training, (including further clarification of course content and reduced rate eligibility), please contact our training administrator.
Further training dates for new courses will be posted on this site as they are confirmed.
