National Trust gets £6.2million from charity to train apprentices
The Hamish Ogston Foundation has awarded £6.2million to the National Trust for a new Heritage Crafts Apprenticeship programme.
The Hamish Ogston Foundation is a charitable organisation dedicated to three prime areas of philanthropic focus: Heritage, Health and Music.
The Hamish Ogston Foundation Heritage Crafts Apprenticeship Programme will offer 52 apprenticeships in stonemasonry or carpentry & joinery, which will result in either a level 2 or level 3 qualification through the government’s formal apprenticeship scheme.
The apprenticeships will be followed by a one-year work placement arranged by the National Trust.
Training begins in September this year. For more information about the opportunity visit bit.ly/NTapprentice.
