HES Update August 2018


The Historic Environment Project is a collaboration between Lincolnshire County Council, Lincoln Cathedral and Heritage Lincolnshire, based out of the Heritage Skills Centre in Lincoln Castle. It is designed to provide traineeships in heritage skills across the East Midlands. 


We are currently recruiting for three paid traineeships with the deadline at midnight on Monday 13 August. 
All will be run by the charity, Heritage Lincolnshire and successful applicants will be given the chance to work on current vital projects. 

One is in Buildings Trust Preservation Management, which is an 18 month placement and two are Field Archaeology placements, both for 12 months. 
Apply now to start your future career in the heritage sector today! 

Lincoln Cathedral 

Our first cohort of two Stone Masons and a Joiner started with Lincoln Cathedral's Works Department in July after successfully applying for the HES traineeships. They have been learning more about their respective disciplines and will be soon enrolling in North Notts College and York College to begin the formal part of their training. 

Tasters at the Heritage Skills Centre

Thank you to everyone who came to the tasters this week! We had an Archaeology workshop and a Buildings Trust Preservation Management session to give more information about the traineeships on offer. 
Watch this space for future tasters as well as traditional heritage and building skills courses!
