The Trust is committed to supporting projects and initiatives to improve traditional skills.
SCHT supports traditional skills development in the following ways:
Stirling Schools Traditional Skills Demonstration Days
This event, in partnership with the Forth Valley Traditional Building Forum, aims to provide a hands-on taster of traditional skills for secondary school pupils in Stirling. The 2018 event including stonemasonry, slating, joinery and sign-writing will take place on the 4th and 5th October. Pop along to Port Street to see what’s happening.
In support of upskilling local contractors in appropriate traditional building repair skills, the Trust offers places on two LSTA approved short lead courses at Forth Valley College in Falkirk, and SQA approved lime working courses based at the Scottish Lime Centre Trust.
If you may be interested in either course please contact us. Dates will be available later in 2018.
