Building your heritage construction skills.

Historic buildings across the UK are an important part of our economy, they are tourism attractions, commercial venues as well as homes and public buildings. More than this, historic buildings create great places to live and enrich people’s lives with a link to our country’s past.

There is a shortage of heritage construction skills in the UK and this poses a serious risk to the long-term survival of our historic buildings. Work in heritage construction is varied, interesting and rewarding. The five modules in this series will help you find out more about the heritage sector and if it could be the next step in your career with this series of short modules.

The content of the five modules is shown below. Key terms introduced will be defined in a short glossary within each module. The glossary will be in full when you have completed all five modules.
