Interested in hosting a trainee?

The Bridging the Digital Gap training programme is led by The National Archives and is a Heritage Lottery funded initiative. The programme accepts eight trainees at a time to form a cohort and will run for three cohorts. UK archive services can apply to host a trainee.

Applications for hosting a trainee from Cohort 3 will open in winter 2019.

Download the application pack:

Applications must be made as a consortium of four archives. One archive will be the lead archive for the consortium and make the application on behalf of the group. Two consortia of four will be selected to form a cohort of eight archives.
