The Diggers’ Forum has conducted an online survey into CPD and Training in commercial archaeology in the UK. The survey was primarily designed for fieldworkers, however respondents included managers and specialists.
Training and professional development are crucial for all archaeologists, and this survey will tell us about both the provision and experience of training, and Continuous Professional Development for archaeologists. We intend to build a picture of training and CPD provision in commercial archaeology, to identify what is provided, what is working, what is not working and develop ways to make the situation better for all archaeologists.
Many thanks to all those who filled out the survey, we are currently analysing the data and hope to publish a full report and recommendations soon.
