NHTG Bursary Scheme

The National Heritage Training Group ran a high quality bursary scheme 2017- 2018. This was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and gave 30 trainees work-based training and skills development opportunities, while receiving a monthly bursary in order to establish a career in the built heritage sector.

During the placements trainees were paid to learn valuable heritage skills, gained qualifications and work experience in heritage workplaces. As part of the scheme the NHTG delivered HLF-funded courses and events too.
