Work Based Training

We support a variety of work based training schemes and applied research studentships. These aim to develop practical experience and provide research opportunities in order to develop the sector workforce and help protect and manage the historic environment. This page will help you find out about current opportunities.


The bursary schemes we support offer practical training opportunities particularly in the area of traditional building and craft skills.
