The Heritage Skills Programme organised by the Reserach Institute for Arts and Humanities at Swansea University has been shortlisted for a presitigious Excellence and Innovation in the Arts award at this year's Tines Higher Education Awards.

The Heritage Skills Progamme offers postgraduate students advanced training in a wide range of skills applicable in the work place in order to enhance employability and career development.  A seminar programme is supported by a series of master classes presented by leading heritage practitioners, and a 'heritage apprentice' programme modelled on the BBC's 'The Apprentice' brought students from all over the UK to contribute to the development of the Hafod-Morfa Copperworks regeneration project.

The winner of the award will be announced at a presentation dinner to be held at the Grosvenor Hotel in London on 24 November.  

Big thanks go to all who have participated in the programme as students, speakers, and judges, but a special mention must be made of Kate Spiler who co-ordinates the programme with great skill and patience, and of Dr Elaine Canning who submitted the nomination on behalf of the Research Institute.

Fingers crossed on 24 November!
