PHM features in HLF Skills for Future video

30 June 2010

The People’s History Museum is delighted to feature in a Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) Skills for the Future video. 

Leanne Tonkin has been studying in our Textile Conservation Studio since September 2009 and has now been offered a full time job as a Conservator at the museum – watch her at work on this short video on youtube  

Skills for the Future offers work-based training in a wide range of skills that are needed to look after buildings, landscapes, habitats, species, and museum and archive collections, as well as equipping people to lead education and outreach programmes, manage volunteers and use new technology.  Its focus is on vocational learning, helping meet the skills gaps identified by heritage bodies, and on encouraging potential trainees from all walks of life.  Trainees will learn how to engage families, schools and communities with their heritage, bringing heritage sites and collections alive for the next generation.
