CBA offers 12 'Youth Focused' Work Place Learning Bursaries

A reminder that the Council for British Archaeology will offer 12 year-long 'youth-focused' work-place learning bursaries from September 2013. Organisations from across the UK are sought to host these placements.

The Community Archaeology Bursaries Project is managed by the Council for British Archaeology and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund through the Skills for the Future programme with additional support from English Heritage, Cadw and Historic Scotland. The project provides year-long work-based learning placements in Community Archaeology with host organisations across the UK. Half way through the three-year programme nine placements have been completed and a further 22 are currently under way.

A further cohort of 12 placements with a focus on developing 'youth engagement' will run from September 2013. The Council for British Archaeology invites archaeological and heritage organisations to apply for the opportunity to host these year-long work-place learning bursaries.

Please note that the application deadline is Thursday 31st January 2013. Decisions will be made and successful hosts notified by the final week of March 2013.
