Heritage Training & Skills - Course announcement coming this week

Yesterday some of the team, including our new Heritage Training and Skills Coordinator, Tricia, met with Nicola Duncan-Finn, Head of Heritage Skills at English Heritage

Nicola is making great progress on the promotion of working collaboratively within the sector to maximise our collective impact around the 'heritage skills' agenda.

It's great to be having these conversations about what we hope to achieve in Derbyshire and how this might fit into the bigger picture.

Photos here are from an early heritage skills pilot in partnership with The Gasworks Sudbury in 2022. People learnt all about lime roof torching and had a go preparing and applying it to the historic retort house roof there.

Keep your eyes peeled later this week for an announcement about a 2-day course we're going to be running relating to historic building repairs and maintenance .

Thanks to The National Lottery Heritage Fund for supporting our work on this as part of our 'Saving our Heritage' project.
