Following the clear success of the Prince's Foundation Building Craft programme over the past 2 years, we are thrilled to announce our support for a third year.

The Building Craft Programme is a full time, 8-month course which gives practical experience in traditional building skills and the opportunity to work towards a Level 3 NVQ in Heritage Skills.

Students have worked on ‘Live Build’ projects at Dumfries House, including the construction of a Chinese Arbour for The Queen Elizabeth Walled Garden and bespoke Garden Gates for the estate. Industry placements have included working with master craftsmen on Exeter Cathedral, York Minster, Kensington Palace and St Fagan’s National Museum of History.

The Prince's Foundation are currently recruiting for their new cohort - click here for more information.
