Our Aim

Our CPD courses will enhance your skills, address key areas to develop your knowledge and career prospects, as well as bridging skills gaps within the sector.

With input from Historic England, the University of Leicester, the Heritage Skills Centre, and nationally recognised experts each course will focus on specific practical, technical, and specialist skills for heritage professionals. The three-year programme will be wide-ranging and cover topics such as re-use of rural buildings, post-war architecture, archiving, and creating statements of significance.

To ensure you get the most out of every course you attend there will be a limited number of places available, this will vary depending on the course and the advice of the individual Course Director.
