Heritage Crafts Apprenticeship Programme
15 June 2022Deadline:
The National Trust and the Hamish Ogston Foundation have announced 52 apprenticeship opportunities in stonemasonry, carpentry and joinery as part of their Heritage Crafts Apprenticeship Programme! Focusing on the potential loss of key heritage skills, this initiative will help to train craftspeople of the future.
The Hamish Ogston Foundation awarded the National Trust £6.2 million to create this Heritage Crafts Apprenticeship Programme, the apprenticeships in which will result in either a Level 2 or Level 3 qualification through the government’s formal apprenticeship scheme. The new apprenticeship programme is open to people of all ages but is particularly targeted at young people to provide them with lifelong employment opportunities.
Unfortunately, there are no opportunities listed for Northern Ireland just now, but keep an eye on this for upcoming opportunities! Currently, apprentices will be trained by heritage skills professionals in the National Trust at one of 12 of the charity’s places across the country: Attingham Park, Clumber Park, Cotehele, Fountains Abbey, Bransdale, Hardwick, Hughenden, Lacock Abbey, Lanhydrock, Lyme, Montacute House and Saltram.
