Lincoln Castle heritage skills staff support new university course

New heritage course: Staff from Lincoln Castle’s Heritage Skills Centre will help coordinate a new course at the University of Leicester.

Staff from the Heritage Skills Centre in Lincoln Castle will help teach a new university course this autumn.

They will become part of the teaching team for a new Heritage Training Programme run by the University of Leicester.

The course will be delivered by staff from the Heritage Skills Centre, English Heritage and the University of Leicester.

The three-year programme will be wide ranging and cover topics such as how to re-use rural buildings, how to preserve burial sites and how to commission and specify work on historic buildings.

Kathryn Banfield, from the Heritage Skills Centre in Lincoln Castle, said: “This partnership is a great opportunity to bring heritage professionals from around the country to see the fantastic built heritage of Lincoln and the wider country.

“We’re looking forward to sharing the expertise of craftspeople and building conservation professionals in the wider heritage sector.”

Details of the full first year course will be released in October. To get more information on the course, contact [email protected]
