Future Skills for Traditional Buildings Conference
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.
This conference will explore how we can balance the shortage of traditional skills with the need to move to modern methods of working. Is there a digital solution?
Through this event we will explore questions such as:
How can we balance the shortage of traditional skills with the need to move to modern methods of working?
What is the role of apprenticeships in this?
Are apprenticeships fit for purpose to meet today’s requirement in the heritage / conservation sector?
Digital solutions for traditional skills
What makes the heritage sector an attractive career choice for young people?
What are the career options in this sector? Where are the skills shortages?

CIOB Conservation Conference
New ideas for tough times
The theme of this year's annual conference is balancing conservation needs against rising costs. It is ideal for professionals involved in historic or traditional buildings as well as homeowners who are embarking on their own project.
We have drawn together leading experts from the UK and Europe who will give delegates the inside track on how these projects were successfully delivered and how they can apply what was learned to their own decision making.
