There has never been a more exciting time for people with technical skills to join the archives sector.
The archives of today are on hard drives, not paper. New digital approaches are needed to help preserve them for the future.
'Bridging the Digital Gap' is a Heritage Lottery funded training programme which will create 24 paid technical trainees in archives around the UK, bringing new skills into the sector. The first two cohorts of 15-month traineeships are already underway.
Applications are now open for archives to host a trainee from Cohort 3 (October 2020 – December 2021). Visit our Hosting a trainee webpage to find out more about the opportunities available and email us by 21 February 2020 to receive a host application pack.
