Our Training Grant aims to raise technical standards in the conservation, repair and maintenance of traditional buildings in Scotland. The focus is on supporting those involved in evaluating, specifying and undertaking works to building fabric to extend their knowledge and skills base. The grant scheme will cover attendance at short training courses and development initiatives only.
The grant scheme supports two areas :
Grants are awarded subject to specific conditions and at our discretion up to a maximum of £1,000. All grant awards are subject to Historic Scotland conditions of grant. Only private sector bodies or individuals may apply, and commercial enterprises must have an annual turnover of less than £4 million per annum.
(b) Applicants must be resident in Scotland.
(c) Applications cannot be accepted for attendance which has already taken place.
(a) Applicants should look at the Training Grant Background Information and The Training Grants Scheme as below and then complete the Application Form including details of the course or work exchange and a breakdown of the estimated costs, as well as a brief statement outlining its relevance to their work and the benefits to be gained from attendance or participation.
