"I’d just like to register my thanks for the usefulness of the NHTG website and the knowledge of the staff. I was looking for information on the provision of trainers and courses, and my query was answered extremely efficiently. It is a most useful resource to point you to the right people and the right places."

Ian Fisher, Heritage Brickworker"I Just wanted to let you that you know that I've almost finished my NVQ3 Heritage brickwork course. I remember when I first contacted the NHTG and spoke to you for advice on training and you advised that the Specialist Apprenticeship Programme run by Gerard Lynch was the best for me. Well I took your advice and it has been a great learning experience and I would just like to say Thank You."
Ian Fisher, Heritage Brickworker

"...Please keep the emails coming. As a planner currently moving into conservation I think the NHTG is an excellent resource for offering training and signposting for any further information or skills that I require, so the more emails the better! Regards..."

It’s great that you are soliciting the views of a wide cross-section of the industry, and I thought the format of open discussion before the meeting was useful in drawing out some strong opinions from the various stakeholders in the audience. It’s great to see your plans progressing..."
