What we do

The NHTG is a voluntary organisation established to co-ordinate the ongoing development and delivery of traditional building crafts training and qualifications in the heritage sector of the UK.

We have created a Traditional Building Skills Training Toolkit that is free to download.

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.

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