Apprentice of Traditional Skills
Published 12th September 2021
16 year old Aaron Richardson is the first apprentice in traditional skills that the Inverkeithing Heritage Regeneration project has been able to part fund. Aaron started his induction on 6th September, with Fife Council, as a joinery apprentice.
We are delighted that heritage-driven regeneration in Fife, through supporting skills development and this excellent Fife Council training programme, has been able to welcome Aaron to his joinery apprenticeship journey, and at Fife Historic Buildings Trust, we wish him every success. FHBT are working in partnership with Fife Council to deliver the 5-year, heritage-led project in Inverkeithing. The project also receives funding from Historic Environment Scotland and the Heritage Fund.
The project has funding to support two year one apprentices in the private sector, in addition to two in Fife Council. If you are, or know of, an employer in a traditional skills area, then get in touch with to discuss how we can help you recruit an apprentice, and help build Fife’s capacity to appropriately repair and maintain the wealth of built heritage.
Stone masons, traditional roofers, plasterers, joiners – we can also support training for year 3 and 4 apprentices. We look forward to hearing from you.
Once again, welcome and good luck Aaron.
