6 hour course
The loss of traditional craft skills has reached critical levels, owing to retirements from an ageing workforce, insufficient Apprenticeships and a ‘framework’ which is not fit for purpose. This is against the background that for the next ten years an unprecedented number of large projects are planned where these skills will be essential - both within the UK and Europe. Just think of The Palace of Westminster and Notre Dame Cathedral to start with.
