Skills for the Future is a Heritage Lottery Fund programme designed to help not-for-profit organisations in the UK deliver paid training placements to meet skills shortages in the heritage sector and to help diversify the workforce.
The new £10 million initiative is open to not-for-profit organisations and partnerships led by not-for-profit organisations in the UK for grants of between £100,000 and £750,000.
The programme aims to:
o Fund high quality, paid work-based training opportunities;
o Provide placements that equip people with the skills to pursue a career in heritage;
o Address identified skills shortages in the heritage sector;
o Increase the diversity of the heritage workforce;
o Enhance the capacity of the heritage sector to deliver sustainable training and share good practice.
All Skills for the Future projects should contribute towards the following three outcomes:
1. People will have developed skills;
2. People will have learnt about heritage;
3. Communities will see more people and a wider range of people engaged with heritage.
Projects must:
o Provide training opportunities between three and 18 months long that are additional to current or recent provision;
o Provide accreditation for the training, where it is available and appropriate to the trainees;
o Maximise opportunities to develop new qualifications or standards where there is a demonstrable need in the heritage sector.
