First archaeology apprenticeship offered!

We were really pleased to see the first advert for a Trailblazer apprenticeship in archaeology out this week from L-P Archaeology, see advert here. The apprenticeship is an Archaeological Specialist Level 7 degree apprenticeship and is in post-excavation skills with a focus on medieval pottery. The apprentice will gain valuable workplace skills over a three year period as well as a Masters degree in Professional Practice.

The Trailblazer apprenticeships are the culmination of over seven years hard work by the Historic Environment Trailblazer Group of employers and training providers, convened by Historic England and supported by CIfA, Icon and IHBC. The Archaeological Specialist apprenticeship was designed to address skills needs across a number of specialist areas and has benefitted from consultation with relevant CIfA Special Interest Groups.
