Applications are invited for a part time Project Co-ordinator and 5 trainees for the Shipshape Heritage Training Partnership project, a new Heritage Lottery Skills for the Future funded initiative managed by National Historic Ships UK (NHS-UK).
Subject to confirmation of HLF funding on 28 January, this project will provide ten 12-month training placements at five partner sites ranging from Scotland to the West Country and offering on-board specialist training to ensure the significance of these craft and the ability to operate them safely and effectively is kept alive. The trainees will also undertake a tailored course in historic vessel maintenance at the International Boatbuilding Training College and an interpretation placement at the Scottish Fisheries Museum. A skills mapping exercise will provide template training models for the wider sector and an assessment framework for seamanship skills will be developed as a project legacy.
To apply for the project co-ordinator role or one of the trainee vacancies, please view the job descriptions at: http://www.shipshapenetwork.org.uk/jobs.php?type=offered. Closing date for applications is 31 January 2014
