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.

Here is a new video of one of the trainees in action! This is Melanie 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.

As part of the scheme we are running some exciting and informative courses, including the one below.
