The ING studentship programme has for more than 10 years now offered European astronomy students the opportunity to train as an observer on a medium-sized ground-based optical telescope. This is particularly important in the era of very large telescopes and their queue-scheduled observing. This limits direct access by young astronomers, and is giving rise to a generation of astronomers with much reduced experience of observing.
