research company wanted for Heritage Craft Research

We are delighted to announce that after several years advocacy work Government through the BIS office of John Hayes have agreed funding for a major piece of research into the state of heritage craft skills.

The tender document with all details of the proposed research "Mapping the occupations, skills and economic contribution of the heritage craft sector" is available for download as a PDF here or from the CCSkils website The timeframe is tight with deadline for tender applications just 3 weeks away 17th October.

This will be the first time serious research has been undertaken mapping the whole of the heritage craft sector and it should give us very good information on the current state, which crafts are healthy, which are endangered and which have potential for growth. Once we have that data then we can set about addressing the issues raised.
