Funded MA programme for project officers/ finds officers etc - Archaeological Specialist

Employers in England can access 95% or 100% subsidised degree apprenticeships for new or existing staff.

The Archaeological Specialist degree apprenticeship has been developed with employers, CIfA and Historic England to cover the range of skills and practices needed by archaeologists working in the sector who have taken on a role where there are responsible for seeing a project through from planning to reporting and publication.  It is aimed to cover a wide range of specialisms, including excavation/project management, finds and environmental analysis, geophysics, and survey. Upon completion the apprentice will obtain an MA in Archaeological Practice and an apprenticeship certificate and will be ready for MCIfA membership.

The programme is delivered on a day-release basis with live online teaching sessions.

The second course will be starting in September 2022 or January 2023, delivered by Professor Nigel Nayling.

Feedback from the first cohort has confirmed that the programme has improved staff performance and is highly relevant to their current practice.
