National Training Bursary Project

The Dry Stone Walling Association is offering the opportunity to train for a new career in the traditional craft of dry stone walling. With support from the Heritage Lottery Fund Skills for the Future programme, a National Training Bursary Project has been launched. Our new project is very exciting as we plan to offer 8 young people a 12 month Training Bursary that will equip them with the skills to make a fresh start with a career in dry stone walling.  Below are links for the factsheet, requirements for applicants, an application form and draft terms for the project.  Closing date for completed applications is Monday 7 May.
