North West Heritage Skills Hub: Building the future on the heritage of the past

Heritage Works is a member of the North West Heritage Skills Hub, which aims to support traditional building skills training and professional development for the heritage sector through:

  • Maintaining a network of organisations and individuals who are involved in heritage across the region
  • Providing information on regional heritage skills statistics
  • Raising awareness and creating training and partnership opportunities for heritage skills training
  • Signposting opportunities for wider training such as Health and Safety
  • Keeping hub members updated on issues affecting those working within the heritage built environment

The Hub is steered by a group of built heritage professionals with knowledge and influence at strategic level in national and regional organisations.
