The Prince of Wales’s Building Crafts Apprentices

November 3, 2008

The Prince of Wales’s Building Crafts Apprentices scheme is an eight-month programme of applied study which offers building craftspeople the opportunity to enhance and advance their design knowledge and experience in traditional and sustainable building crafts.

HRH The Prince of Wales has highlighted the severe shortage of skilled craftspeople in the construction industry and the impact this has had on building sustainable communities. The decline of traditional skills worldwide poses a danger to the heritage sector, to new building construction, and to identifying with our cultural heritage and sense of place.

The Prince of Wales’s Building Crafts Apprentices scheme offers talented, enthusiastic and committed craftspeople the opportunity to enhance their vocational skills with the design knowledge, work experience and coaching necessary to succeed in a career in the traditional building sector.

We are looking for building craftspeople who want to bridge the gap between basic qualifications and becoming a master craftsperson. Successful applicants will be rewarded with an eight-month programme of courses and work placements, during which they will be given the opportunity to develop their craftsmanship and use their skills in a broad, holistic building context alongside other building professionals.

The closing date for applications is 15th January 2009.
