Essex County Council bursary place

Essex County Council are to continue offering fully funded place on their courses via the City and County Bursary, which will be providing funding for sixth year to help address the problem of the traditional building skills shortage through the bursary scheme, offering free places on the Traditional Building Skills courses.

The bursary provides an opportunity for acquiring experience of craft building techniques, relevant to historic buildings, for those in the building industry who otherwise may find it financially prohibitive to attend. It will be particularly suitable for independent builders and small contractors.

Applicants must:
  • be working in the built environment, and
  • show a commitment to expanding their knowledge of the built heritage sector
