Skills Training: Overview

Traditional skills are vitally important to maintaining and managing our historic environment to appropriate standards. They also provide a valuable connection to the past and inspiration for future employment. Over the last decade the Trust has increasingly offered both traditional building and archaeological skills training through its projects, recognising the protection and enhancement of traditional building and archaeological skills as a core strategic objectives:

“Building on its success in delivering traditional skills training as a key part of archaeology and built heritage conservation projects, PKHT will deliver a range of traditional skills training projects to encourage young people to consider careers in or related to traditional skills and/or to develop the skills of people currently working in relevant and related sectors.”

Our projects are designed for a wide variety of audiences, ranging from school pupils to community payback workgroups. For more information, please contact our Skills Training and Outreach Officer.
