Section for Archival Education and Training

The ICA Section for Archival Education and Training (SAE) aims to provide a network for educators and trainers in archival science and all those interested in professional education and training.

We seek to:

  • promote co-operation between archival training institutions in order to assist in the development of research and qualifications for record keeping around the world;
  • to disseminate information about educational opportunities and training activities for example through regional educational conferences;
  • and to co-operate with other bodies of the ICA in the preparation of training materials.

Current projects include the Training the Trainer Resource Pack , now translated into Bahasa Indonesian, Portuguese, German, Spanish, French and English, with plans for Polish and Arabic; the preparation of an online directory of archives and records education provision; a digital recordkeeping curriculum project; and an international research database.
