TRADITIONAL Building Skills TRAINING Toolkit

The National Heritage Training Group (NHTG) in partnership with The Churches Conservation Trust (CCT) have developed a Traditional Building Skills Training Toolkit. The Toolkit provides a step by step guide to putting traditional building skills and conservation training at the heart of built heritage projects.

The Toolkit is a free online resource available to download and read here or buy a hardcopy below.

NHTG ToolkitThis development of the Toolkit is part of a drive to provide a sustainable future for our built heritage. It is recognised that the training and education of a new generation of skilled workforce is vital to ensure that our heritage buildings are properly rehabilitated, repaired and maintained to secure their lasting legacy.

NHTG and the CCT believe that on-site, practical training is effective and priceless. As part of a recent CCT regeneration project at All Souls church in Bolton, six paid training placements were funded on the project, by the NHTG ‘Building Traditional Skills’.  Read more about the placements here, along with a film showing their experience on site here.

The Toolkit draws on the experience and learning from the All Souls Bolton project, the NHTG, and expertise from historic building and traditional materials consultants. It is hoped that the Toolkit will become an essential part of project planning documentation, and will help to ensure that training is central to any heritage building project in future.

Sarah Robinson, Director of Conservation for the CCT said ‘We are aiming to embed training, education and craft skills into our projects so that the end result is not just a conservation success, but a push forward in creating a sustainable animated workforce for the future of our heritage.’
