Applications will be open until 10:00 (BST) on 29th April, however, if the volume of applications is high before this date, we will close the application form. With up to 25 spaces available, we’ll be looking to ensure that those taking part are those who most need the training content, as well as ensuring that we are offering training to a range of heritage types.


Successful applicants will be informed by 30th April and will be sent joining instructions after this date. Should accepted applicants find they are unable to make the workshop nearer the date, we do ask that we are informed as soon as possible, so that the place on this training may be offered to another applicant.
