In 2009, the National Heritage Training Group in partnership with the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) GB and CITB NI, published a report outlining the state of demand, supply and training provision within the built heritage sector across the whole of Ireland. Two reports; including a larger research report and a summary report were produced.
Through the 2017-18 Historic Environment Fund, HED commissioned CITB NI to carry out further research to provide an update position for Northern Ireland only. The research was carried out between February and April 2018 and published in June 2018.
This 2018 report aims to provide an overview of the current situation in the heritage sector in Northern Ireland in terms of demand for, and supply of, skills, training provision and, importantly, to provide a number of recommendations to assist the sector to develop its training capacity going forward.
