Training Opportunities in the South West
Our Historic Environment Local Management (HELM) programme offers free training for local authority staff, those working in the public sector and as volunteers.
This year, we’ve added HELM Essentials, a training programme designed for local authority planners and newcomers to historic environment services.
Listed below are the latest training opportunities in the South West.
Setting in Practice (HELM Essentials), 18 May 2017
This course will introduce local authority entry-level heritage and non-heritage professionals with a heritage remit in their roles to the principles that underpin the setting of heritage assets. The course will provide you with a fundamental level of confidence in considering the setting of heritage assets and how development can both harm and enhance our experience of the historic environment.
Local Heritage Listing, 28 June 2017
The overall aim of this course is to encourage delegates to consider how local heritage listing might be adopted effectively and efficiently.
Conservation Areas at 50, 7 September 2017
2017 is the 50th anniversary of the Civic Amenities Act that established conservation areas, and this course is just one of the activities we're leading on to celebrate the anniversary.
The event includes an update of the 2016 Understanding Place: Conservation Area Designation, Appraisal and Management Guidance Note, surveys of Civic Voice, IHBC members and the general public, and a focus on conservation areas as part of Heritage at Risk. It will also complement and draw on the work of other organisations, such as the 20th Century Society’s survey of 20th century conservation areas.
The National Planning Policy Framework Decoded - A practical workshop, 22 November 2017
This course is a practical, problem-solving workshop aimed at encouraging the consistent and efficient delivery of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) amongst Development Management Planning staff. Led by speakers from a range of Historic England departments, the course will tackle key problem topics through a mixture of group discussions, case study exercises and expert panels.
