Traditional Skills Schools

Traditional Building Skills for Schools in Stirling

We support the development of traditional building skills by offering training and skills events to young people in Stirling.

Women In Construction

In 2020 we held our first Women in Construction event at Bannockburn High School in collaboration with DYW Forth Valley, Historic Environment Scotland, and the Forth Valley Traditional Building Forum. The event encouraged female high school pupils to consider a career in the construction sector by showing them how varied, creative and rewarding the work can be.

The majority of speakers and demonstrators were women working in the construction and heritage sectors, as SCHT believes that ‘you can’t be what you can’t see’.
