A traditional building in Inverkeithing

Fife Historic Buildings Trust (FHBT) are holding an open virtual breakfast meeting, on 28th January 2021, 8 - 8.45 a.m. The meeting launches the traditional training and skills development opportunities the 5-year project will offer to the construction sector.

Fife has a higher concentration of listed buildings than any other local authority area in Scotland. The traditional skills training provided free through the Inverkeithing Heritage Regeneration project will allow individuals, construction industry firms and building professionals - architects and surveyors - to develop or hone their tradition building skills. Help us to protect Fife’s world class heritage for generations to come, by appropriate and timely maintenance.

At the meeting, FHBT staff will outline future construction opportunities coming up through the project, and advise on accessing the funded training in traditional skills. Fife Council’s Employability team will advise on the mechanics of taking on a traditional skills apprentice. There will be time for questions and networking.

This latest event organised by Fife Historic Buildings Trust (FHBT) is made possible through funding from The National Lottery Heritage Fund and Historic Environment Scotland and other funding partners.  The Inverkeithing Heritage Regeneration scheme is delivered by FHBT on behalf of Fife Council.

Councillor Alice McGarry, Convener of the South and West Fife Area Committee, said “Inverkeithing’s heritage is world class and for centuries it has been an important centre for international trade. The buildings and historic spaces reflect its prosperity and influence. This meeting launches the traditional skills training opportunities and funded apprenticeships. It reflects Fife’s commitment to the local construction industry, to training young people in vital, sustainable careers, and to heritage-led regeneration.”
