The Heritage Skills HUB for the English Midlands – often simply known as the ‘HeritageHUB’ – exists to raise the profile of Heritage Craft Skills within the Built Environment through news, events, networking and collaboration. The HeritageHUB is currently administered by EMCBE with support from English Heritage.
The HeritageHUB exists to support everyone in the traditional skills industry, from professionals such as architects and structural engineers, to contractors, local authorities, volunteer and community groups, property owners, building preservation trusts, schools and training providers, to improve their understanding of the skills and materials needed for the repair, maintenance and sustainable development of traditional buildings. Our built heritage includes ALL buildings constructed before 1919, and their long-term preservation depends on the specialist skill, knowledge and expertise of contractors, tradespeople, craftspeople and building professionals.
The HeritageHUB offers information on Qualifications, Heritage CSCS Card, Training Courses, Future Heritage Events, Heritage Funding, and other useful Heritage Links & Information.
The HeritageHUB maintains a strong online presence through the HeritageHUB website, Twitter and blog in order to spread relevant information and encourage collaboration, growth and clarity.
Working with a host of partners, the HeritageHUB is able to offer a variety of events throughout the region. Recent successes include HeritageCSCS card workshops for contractors and a series of ‘Lime in New Build’ lectures. Planned events for the future include a programme of workshops dedicated to informing those working within the traditional skills industry how their businesses can benefit from the use of Social Media.
The HeritageHUB publishes a monthly e-newsletter that aims to keep abreast of new developments within the heritage industry and provide a source of relevant and interesting information. The newsletter contains a comprehensive listing of events in the region, and boasts a strong and growing readership.
