We are currently running a bursary scheme funded through the Heritage Lottery Fund, to train people in heritage skills within a workplace setting. Find out more here.

We have HLF-funded Heritage courses coming up: 25th July London, 4th August Lincoln, 28th September Ripon.

We are also running HLF-funded Heritage SAP and SUP courses in stonemasonry and wood occupations, starting on the 11th September.

The NHTG  runs a telephone helpdesk offering heritage building skills training guidance.
