About the NHTG Bursary Scheme

HLF logoThe National Heritage Training Group have been awarded £779,200 funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to provide high quality, work-based training and skills development opportunities to equip people for a career in the built heritage sector.

This includes 30 bursaries, which have seen trainees working for between six months and a year within a built heritage company and learning about the craft through work experience. The trainees have been paid a bursary each month, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The Bursary scheme closed in spring 2018.

Here is a video of one of the trainees in action! This is Melloney Saffron Hardy, working on a historic plasterwork matching project. The project is being delivered by KL Langton at the Grade II listed Pioneer House in Dewsbury.
