This paper looks into the current tertiary and vocational offering in the domain of digital curation in two small countries, Malta and New Zealand. It illustrates how the specifics of local memory institutions and digital media sector influence the existing course, and identifies areas which can be improved. Particular emphasis in both countries needs to be placed on the vocational education and in-service training; in addition in Malta there is a need to develop a framework for the validation of the non-formal and informal learning in the domain of digital curation.
