Advanced professional diploma in technical building conservation
Historic Environment Scotland has developed this unique diploma in consultation with heritage experts to meet the growing demand for conservation skills across the heritage sector.
The advanced professional diploma in technical building conservation will prepare you for a wide range of specialist careers in the heritage sector. New graduates, emerging professionals and existing practitioners can all benefit from the opportunity to broaden their expertise.
The programme aims to give you a wide spectrum of knowledge and skills in practical building conservation techniques, backed up by a thorough understanding of Scottish architectural and construction traditions. You will also study current issues and leading technical developments, and ground your new knowledge in today’s conservation principles and best practice.
Our diploma programme gives you unrivalled access to national and international experts in the field, from academics to scientists. Vocational, applied and practical in nature, modules are studied mainly at the Engine Shed. The first full presentation will start in August 2017.
