PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD

This will assist the learner in acquiring an overview of the types of regulations and guidelines governing the management of cultural landscapes to enable effective and sustainable participation in heritage development practices.

    Policy and legislation

    Policies and legislation studied at the national, provincial and local authority level are selected by the learner depending on the learner`s interests and physical place of residence and/or work. International policies and legislations are negotiated between the educator and the learner with emphasis on the relevance of the policy to the learner`s identified knowledge and skill needs.


    Heritage development and sustainability

  • Nature reserves
  • Museums and art galleries
