Traditional heritage skills and training opportunities – Inverkeithing Heritage Regeneration
Jan 28 @ 8:00 am – 8:45 am

Would you like to know more about heritage tendering opportunities in Inverkeithing and training and funded apprenticeships?

 

Fife Historic Buildings Trust is holding an open virtual breakfast meeting at 8-8.45am on 28 January to launch the traditional training and skills development opportunities the 5-year Inverkeithing Heritage Regeneration Project will be offering to the construction sector.

 

Fife has a higher concentration of listed buildings than any other local authority area in Scotland.  The traditional skills training provided free through the project will allow individuals, construction industry firms and building professionals to develop or improve their traditional building skills.

 

At this meeting staff from the Fife Historic Buildings Trust will outline the construction opportunities coming up through the project and advise on accessing funding for training in traditional skills.

 

Fife Council’s employability team will advise on the mechanics of taking on a traditional skills apprentice.

Feb 3 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Join this Chamber Chat with Fergus Ewing MSP, Scottish Government Cabinet Secretary for the Rural Economy and Tourism.

 

Fergus Ewing’s brief includes the tourism sector, which is a sector that has been hit harder than most by business restrictions, with a dramatic impact on its fortunes and its large supply chain across Fife.    With a joint Scottish Government and industry recovery plan in place for the sector, this is a perfect opportunity to explain to the Cabinet Secretary how your business is being impacted by Covid and how the Scottish Government can best help you get through the next few months.
