HLF Skills for the Future Initative
As part of their strategic framework, the Heritage Lottery Fund will be running another Skills for the Future initiative, providing paid work-based training placements to meet skills shortages in the heritage sector.
Grants of £100,000- £1million will be available to not-for-profit organisations to fund vocational training in skills that are essential to the future conservation of heritage as well as to the effective engagement of the public. The HLF's Trustees have set aside £15 million for this initiative.
An online application pack will available at www.hlf.org.uk/skills from 31 October 2012 outlining the two-round application procedure. First-round applications need to be submitted by noon on 31 January 2013, for a decision in May 2013. If you have an idea for a project, please submit a project enquiry form which will be available online from 31 October 2012 and HLF's Development teams will advise you on next steps.
You can find out more about the programme by attending one of the Skills for the Future pre-application workshops, happening across the UK in November and December 2012.
