ABOUT us

Heritage imageThe NHTG co-ordinates the development and delivery of traditional building crafts training and qualifications in the heritage sector of the UK.

The NHTG runs a membership scheme, a helpdesk offering training guidance, online resources, delivers training and events. The NHTG has delivered two successful HLF-funded Bursary schemes, which saw trainees trained to establish a career in built heritage.

In February 2019 the NHTG were delighted to receive a grant from the B&CE Charitable Trust to deliver a series of built heritage training courses to those from a low-income background. This project is in the planning stages but will be delivered later this year.

The NHTG raises awareness of the importance of heritage craft skills across all sectors – professionals, training providers, contractors, property-owners, volunteers, community groups, heritage organisations, sector skills councils and other support agencies – to try to ensure the continued preservation and sustainable use of traditional buildings.
