West Suffolk Historic Building Conservation CPD training for lecturers (October 2017)

As part of the change in the method of student training from a lecture course to practical experience, BTT sponsored a CPD day for West Suffolk College Construction lecturers at Orchard Barn Community run Environmental Education Centre at Ringshall, Stowmarket.

The lecturers described it as “a brilliant day” and “a very useful opportunity to understand materials and workmanship better”, as well as giving them an opportunity to think and talk about applying what they had learnt to student experience – particularly for the BTT PoDs.
