Press Release NHTG – 10th October 2014
NHTG OFFER NEW SUPPORT FOR SKILLS, TRAINING & SUSTAINABLE TRADITIONAL BUILDINGS.
The NHTG is pleased to announce our new home at offices in the historic mining town of Clay Cross, Derbyshire, from where we will operate a new Helpdesk facility. The Helpdesk will initially run three days a week and will offer traditional building skills support, information and guidance across the whole of the UK and beyond!
This Helpdesk is a critical part of our strategy to qualify those working in the historic built environment. Traditional building skills are vitally important to the sustainability, viability and vitality of the UK’s old buildings. It will support the NHTG website which already offers a comprehensive Online Information Centre and Training Provider Database giving access to a wealth of information and guidance on craft skills, training, qualifications and courses.
