IfA - seeking new hosts for HLF funded Workplace Learning Bursaries
In October 2009 we announced that the institute had been successful in securing ?355,746.69 of additional funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to continue the top provide Workplace Learning Bursaries. This new funding will allow the project to continue for another 19 months, allowing 20 more individuals to take up placements with professional archaeological organisations. The new funding will be used to create new placements which will start throughout 2010 and 2011. These new placements will be tailored to meet the skills gaps that have been identified by research undertaken by the IfA and will take account of the changing working landscape that is confronting archaeology as the recession bites into this sector. The project will also identify and train Workplace Learning Champions who will promote the scheme and workplace learning across the sector.

We are now seeking hosts for new placements, if you would like to propose a placement at your organisation please read the information for prospective hosts on the Bursaries Page and contact Natasha Kingham at

Hmmmmm a BAJR placement? perhaps I should apply. Lots to learn about running a busy dynamic web based archaeology portal.

I think you should apply. Although you probably ought to consider what you and the placement person can offer each other! I gather the forms aren't too onerous.
