Moulton College seeks funding for new heritage school

Moulton College, one of only a handful of colleges in the country that run specialist stonemasonry courses, is appealing for funding to help with the opening of a new heritage centre.

The Northamptonshire college has been training students in skills associated with the natural, built and recreational environment for more than 100 years and has identified a space in heritage training. It has has secured a donation from a local employer but needs more funds in order to create a teaching environment that will further enhance the experience for its stonemasonry students.

Matt Smith, executive director of skills and business development at Moulton, told Stone Specialist: "As a specialist further education college with a long track record of supporting the stonemasonry industry, we have recognised the significant shortage of training opportunities for those students wishing to specialise in the heritage sector.

"We have significant demand from potential students as well as our employer partners and so are looking to work with potential supporters to develop an industry leading heritage specialist workshop at our Holcot Campus. Only by developing this dedicated space can we provide the high-quality learning opportunities our students deserve and our employers need."
