Traditional Building Skills for Schools in Stirling
Stirling City Heritage Trust is committed to supporting projects and initiatives to improve traditional skills. We support the development of traditional building skills by offering training to building contractors and learning opportunities to schools and young people in Stirling.
Women in Construction – Bannockburn High School 2020
The event aimed to encourage female high school pupils to consider a career in the construction sector by showing them how varied and rewarding the work can be.
The majority of speakers and demonstrators were women working in the construction industry, as SCHT believe that ‘you can’t be what you can’t see’. The target audience was female high-school students in the Stirling area from S2-S5. The event coincided with International Women’s Day, on March 8th and Scottish Apprenticeship Week.

In October 2018 we held an event in Stirling town centre in partnership with the Forth Valley Traditional Building Forum. The event provided a hands-on taster of traditional skills for secondary school pupils in Stirling. The 2018 event offered young people a chance to try their hand at traditional building skills, such as stonemasonry, slating, joinery and sign-writing.
