Heritage Restoration Apprentice - Advanced Apprentice

£3.50-£8.10 per hour depending on age and experience


An exciting training opportunity has arisen to undertake a heritage restoration apprenticeship to gain experience and skills in traditional carpentry, metal working, painting and finishing on restoration projects based at Beamish Museum.

We are seeking an enthusiastic, hardworking individual who has a passion for working in heritage restoration. The role will involve working on a wide range of repair and maintenance projects using both modern and traditional skills and will be based in our Regional Heritage Engineering Centre at Beamish Museum. Apprentices will work alongside experienced heritage craftsmen to gain on the job experience working on a wide range of projects including fairground exhibits, trams, buses, railway carriages and other road vehicles.

The apprenticeship training programme will be tailored to enhance the existing skills of the successful candidate. Those with limited hands on experience will be enrolled onto a level 2 programme in wood occupations at a local college. Those with previous experience/qualifications will progress onto a level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in heritage wood occupations based at the Heritage Skills College based in Bedale, North Yorkshire. The level 3 training route will therefore include time away from home every 5 weeks for block release to attend The Heritage Skills Centre based in Bedale, North Yorkshire. Accommodation and travel will be provided by the museum during college release.
