We plan to use every opportunity to raise awareness of the remarkable work being done to retain the built heritage by engaging with a wide range of partners and property owners who are working in the heritage field and whose work needs to be recognised.
Our aim is to provide a wide range of opportunities for people to engage at all levels with the built heritage sector, enhance knowledge and understanding and learn essential skills.
The result of our degree and other courses will be the restoration of heritage buildings of all types in partnership with their owners, and other partners through the involvement of those taking part in our programmes.
“There is a need for people with both a necessary high level of craft skill and an academic and theoretical perspective. For too long (at least within our educational system) we have isolated the two from one another to the detriment of the sector. Those who specify and those who repair will develop a greater understanding of one another’s strengths through our programmes.”
BCCF is very grateful to the following organisations who have provided funding for it. In particular to Awards for All for their support for the designing of this website and publicity for working with local communities.
We are grateful to the Scarfe Trust for their donation.
