This is a fantastic opportunity to work and learn on a heritage site with conservation specialists who have run an established apprenticeship programme for over 20 years.

This traditional apprenticeship combines learning at a college or training provider with on-site experience to give the right mix of technical and practical skills.

The apprenticeship will result in an NVQ or SVQ qualification which can be used to qualify for an industry card scheme.
