The STBF member, the Prince’s Foundation, is recruiting for its Building Craft Programme 2018-19.
Its 8 month Building Craft Programme gives practical experience in traditional building crafts and an opportunity to gain a Heritage Skills NVQ Level 3.
This course is designed for craftspeople looking to bridge the gap between basic qualifications and becoming a master craftsperson working within the heritage sector. The programme involves a Summer School and 10 week Live Build followed by placements with traditional building companies and master craftspeople across the UK.
All participants are paid a monthly bursary of £1000.
The Prince’s Foundation welcomes applications from craftspeople who have studied any of a wide variety of building crafts including: stonemasonry, joinery, bricklaying, roofing and tiling, plastering, thatching, metalwork and painting and decorating.
