Skills for the Future is a HLF grants programme for projects which provide paid work-based training placements to meet a skills shortage in the heritage sector and help diversify the workforce. Grants will be from £100,000 to £750,000.
In two previous rounds, in 2010 and 2014, our trustees awarded grants to 93 projects, investing £47m across the UK. To date, 40 projects have completed, over 1,700 trainees have been recruited and 1,300 of those have finished their placement.
On 24 June 2016, we will publish guidance and forms on our website when the programme opens to applications. There will be a two-round application process, with 29 September the deadline for first round applications.
If you would like to register for one of HLF’s information workshops then please book via Eventbrite.
If you experience any issues booking a place or you can’t attend a workshop but would like to receive an alert when programme guidance is ready, please email the Skills team.
