This one-day course is of interest to crafts persons – both trainees and supervisors, builders and professionals.

This requires the informed guidance of a mentor with a high level of practical skill and underpinning knowledge and experience. Less experienced, but skilled craftspeople can be trained and mentored to become a master craftsperson.  

This course is set within the context of the theory and practicalities of conserving traditional/heritage buildings and will be a useful addition for those studying heritage skills Level 3 diplomas and NVQs. This course will provide an excellent opportunity for the exchange of information and experience and will assist Learners to develop their craft skill, with the ambition of eventually reaching a status similar to that of their mentor. This course will also inform employers, who may wish to nominate either themselves or one of their staff to become a mentor to guide their developing team.
