Foreword<br />

<strong>Scotland</strong> has a wonderfully diverse heritage of monuments and traditional<br />

buildings which includes the infrastructure and streetscapes that make up our<br />

cities, towns and villages. The traditional materials used to build these structures<br />

and streetscapes have been utilised for hundreds, and in some cases thousands, of<br />

years. A considerable wealth of skill and knowledge of how to coax the very best<br />

performance from these materials was passed from generation to generation. After<br />

two world wars however, changes in construction materials and techniques<br />

prompted a serious decline in many of the skills that were used to construct the<br />

traditional structures around us.<br />

In an era of ever increasing appreciation for the value of our built heritage and the<br />

need for sustainability, it is more important than ever to preserve this heritage. In<br />

order to do this, we need people with the right skills. Our reputation in training<br />

and education has always been strong, and this is presently the case in<br />

construction, but there is much more to do in relation to traditional building skills<br />

for repair and maintenance.<br />

There has long been a widespread belief that many qualifications do not cater for<br />

the needs of traditional buildings. Until now, the basis for this belief has been<br />

largely anecdotal. This report, developed in partnership with Construction<strong>Skills</strong><br />

<strong>Scotland</strong>, <strong>Scottish</strong> Qualifications Authority and <strong>Scottish</strong> Enterprise, lays out for the<br />

first time statistical information which reflects to what degree traditional skills are<br />

taught as part of current qualifications. This is the first and crucial step in tackling<br />

the skills shortages that exist in many traditional building trade skills and I hope<br />

that continued partnership working with colleagues will enable us to make<br />

considerable inroads in redressing these shortages.<br />

<strong>Historic</strong> <strong>Scotland</strong> greatly appreciates the help that partner organisations and<br />

contractors have generously given during the compilation of this report.<br />

Introduction<br />

<strong>Traditional</strong>ly constructed dwellings, generally classified as those dating to before<br />

1919, make up approximately 20% (446,000 dwellings in all) of <strong>Scotland</strong>’s building<br />

stock 1 . The <strong>Scottish</strong> construction Industry generates £12 billion 2 of turnover (at<br />

basic prices), and represents over 7% of the <strong>Scottish</strong> economy in terms of gross<br />

domestic product at basic prices.<br />

The provision and availability of appropriate skills and knowledge are fundamental<br />

to effectively caring for the built environment. Repair, maintenance and<br />

improvement accounts for approximately 46% of the total construction industry<br />

output, of which one third relates directly to pre 1919 buildings (accounting for<br />

approximately £1.2 billion). However, many of the skills and techniques required to<br />

repair and maintain pre 1919 buildings differ considerably from those applied to<br />

new buildings and it is generally felt that there is a widespread shortage of<br />

tradespeople with a knowledge of these specific skills in <strong>Scotland</strong>. This is becoming<br />

an increasingly serious issue for the welfare of such buildings and their occupants,<br />

and carries considerable public health and safety implications. A number of recent<br />

reports have highlighted this issue, including the National Heritage Training<br />

Group’s 2007 report <strong>Skills</strong> Needs Analysis of The Built Heritage Sector in <strong>Scotland</strong><br />

which states in its conclusion that “A great need exists to re-establish a base-line<br />

of general knowledge and understanding of conservation and restoration across all<br />

participants, from craft to professional level in the conservation, repair,<br />

maintenance and improvement sector.”<br />

It is widely believed that current building craft skills training is aimed<br />

predominantly at new-build techniques, resulting in tradespeople that do not have<br />

a knowledge of the maintenance and repair techniques that are appropriate for<br />

traditionally constructed buildings. This lack of understanding results in a<br />

widespread application of inappropriate repair techniques to traditional buildings<br />

which in many cases causes further damage to the building fabric. The<br />

implications of this are serious; the issue of inappropriate repair techniques was<br />

highlighted in 2000 by the tragic Ryan’s Bar incident in Edinburgh which resulted<br />

in a fatality. Research was subsequently initiated by the <strong>Scottish</strong> Executive<br />

Development Department which resulted in the production of a report – Risks to<br />

Public Safety from Falling Masonry and Other Materials - Report of <strong>Skills</strong> &<br />

Training Working Party.<br />

In partnership with Construction <strong>Skills</strong> <strong>Scotland</strong>, <strong>Scottish</strong> Qualifications Authority<br />

and <strong>Scottish</strong> Enterprise, <strong>Historic</strong> <strong>Scotland</strong> has initiated the <strong>Scottish</strong> <strong>Traditional</strong><br />

<strong>Building</strong> <strong>Skills</strong> <strong>Audit</strong> <strong>Scoping</strong> Exercise (STBSASE). The project aims to quantify<br />

training that is currently available for traditional building skills and to identify gaps<br />

in current qualification provision. From this, a work programme of qualification<br />

development will be developed focusing on bolt-on units to supplement the<br />

existing <strong>Scottish</strong> Vocational Qualification provision. This is the first action in the<br />

Strategic Partnership Agreement between <strong>Historic</strong> <strong>Scotland</strong>, Construction<strong>Skills</strong> and<br />

the <strong>Scottish</strong> Qualifications Authority in identifying and addressing skills and<br />

knowledge gaps in traditional building skills and will build on the successful<br />

introduction in 2008 of the National Progression Award in Masonry Conservation.<br />

This project is part of the <strong>Traditional</strong> <strong>Building</strong> <strong>Skills</strong> Strategy for Technical<br />

Conservation Group.<br />

Project Outline<br />

Aim<br />

The aim of the overall <strong>Scottish</strong> <strong>Traditional</strong> <strong>Building</strong> <strong>Skills</strong> <strong>Audit</strong> project is to:<br />

1. Gather quantitative data on the delivery of traditional building skills<br />

qualifications in <strong>Scotland</strong><br />

2. Identify where the gaps lie in current training provision in <strong>Scotland</strong> for<br />

traditional building skills<br />

3. Identify the next steps, including potential for focused working groups for key<br />

trade areas to progress the identified “next steps”<br />

This report (which results from the initial <strong>Scoping</strong> Exercise), forms the first and<br />

second stages only of the overall <strong>Audit</strong>.<br />

<strong>Scottish</strong> <strong>Traditional</strong> <strong>Building</strong> <strong>Skills</strong> <strong>Audit</strong> <strong>Scoping</strong> Exercise<br />

6


The <strong>Scoping</strong> Exercise was essentially a data gathering and analysis exercise,<br />

focusing on:<br />

1. National Occupational Standards (NOS’s)<br />

2. <strong>Scottish</strong> Vocational Qualifications (SVQ’s)<br />

3. Higher Nationals (HN’s)<br />

4. TAPS<br />

5. Various other training curricula<br />

The key documentation for all the above were sourced and then analysed to extrapolate<br />

information relevant to traditional building skills. From this analysis, statistical data was<br />

pieced together to give an overview of the percentage of key traditional skills delivered<br />

by existing qualifications in the key traditional building trades.<br />

Objectives of the <strong>Scottish</strong> <strong>Traditional</strong> <strong>Building</strong> <strong>Skills</strong> <strong>Audit</strong><br />

1. Define what is meant by traditional building skills<br />

2. Identify what NOS’s cover topics relevant to traditional building skills<br />

3. Identify what training currently exists (both accredited and non-accredited);<br />

4. Identify what building skills training is required for the maintenance and repair<br />

of traditionally built buildings in <strong>Scotland</strong>;<br />

5. Assess the relevance of current NOS’s and training provision to traditional<br />

building skills;<br />

6. Identify where the gaps lie in current traditional building skills training and<br />

NOS provision.<br />

7. Identify the next steps, including potential for focused working groups for key<br />

trade areas to progress the identified “next steps”<br />

Objectives of the <strong>Scoping</strong> Exercise<br />

1. Define what is meant by traditional building skills<br />

2. Identify what NOS’s cover topics relevant to traditional building skills<br />

3. Identify what training currently exists (both accredited and non-accredited);<br />

4. Identify what building skills training is required for the maintenance and repair<br />

of traditionally built buildings in <strong>Scotland</strong>;<br />

5. Assess the relevance of current NOS’s and training provision to traditional<br />

building skills;<br />

6. Identify where the gaps lie in current traditional building skills training and<br />

NOS provision.<br />

Project Methodology<br />

1. Define what is meant by traditional building craft skills and compile a framework<br />

of these skills (please refer to attached Appendix 1.<br />

2. Identify what NOS’s cover topics relevant to traditional building skills.<br />

NOS’s are the foundation of building skill qualifications. It is therefore important<br />

to identify gaps in the current provision and content of NOS’s relating to<br />

traditional building craft skills and the needs of traditionally constructed buildings.<br />

Identify all current NOS’s (and NOS suites) which relate to traditional craft skills.<br />

Identify which NOS’s are currently under review;<br />

3. Identify what training currently exists (both accredited and non-accredited);<br />

Identify what accredited training is currently available in <strong>Scotland</strong> for traditional<br />

building craft skills and at what accreditation level.<br />

Identify what non-accredited (i.e. non-SQA accredited) training is currently<br />

available in <strong>Scotland</strong> by contacting all colleges and training providers.<br />

4. Identify what building skills training is required for the maintenance and repair of<br />

traditionally built buildings in <strong>Scotland</strong>;<br />

Establish working groups for each skills set<br />

Compile list of key skills and training needs specific to traditional building skills<br />

5. Assess the relevance of current NOS and training provision to traditional building skills;<br />

Liaise with Project board<br />

Liaise with skills set working groups<br />

6. Identify where the gaps lie in current traditional building skills training and NOS<br />

provision.<br />

Liaise with Project Board<br />

Liaise with skills set working groups<br />

7. Identify the next steps to arise from the project findings<br />

Liaise with Project Board<br />

Liaise with skills set working groups<br />

Identify which skills require training development<br />

Identify what new qualifications (or Units) could potentially be developed.<br />

Compile a prioritised training development programme<br />

This will require developmental research with sector stakeholders.<br />

Project Team<br />

The Project Manager, Ali Davey (<strong>Historic</strong> <strong>Scotland</strong> Conservation Group (HSCG)),<br />

worked in collaboration with the Glasgow Metropolitan College Teaching Fellow,<br />

Alison McCandlish, and with <strong>Historic</strong> <strong>Scotland</strong> Research Assistant, Andrew<br />

McMaster.<br />

A project board was chaired by David Mitchell, Director of <strong>Historic</strong> <strong>Scotland</strong><br />

Conservation Group (formerly Technical Conservation Group), with a number of<br />

project partners invited to input.<br />

Project Board<br />

A Project Board was established in connection with the project, the purpose of<br />

which was to:<br />

a. agree and finalise the brief for the STBSASE;<br />

b. agree and finalise the methodology for the audit;<br />

c. provide a forum to meet at regular intervals throughout the project (every two<br />

months, or on an ad-hoc basis where required) in order to share information<br />

and report back on progress in fulfilling the brief;<br />

d. ensure that the needs of all the project partners are represented and any relevant<br />

information they might be able to provide is shared to progress the audit;<br />

e. evaluate the findings of the project and agree how to progress the objectives<br />

based on the results of the audit;<br />

f. provide specialist knowledge.<br />

Membership of the Project Board was as follows:<br />

• Construction <strong>Skills</strong> <strong>Scotland</strong>, Stephen Sheridan (Careers and Qualifications<br />

Manager – <strong>Scotland</strong>)<br />

• Construction <strong>Skills</strong> <strong>Scotland</strong>, Richard Groom (Heritage <strong>Skills</strong> Advisor <strong>Scotland</strong>)<br />

• Glasgow Metropolitan College, John Halpin (Head of Craft <strong>Skills</strong> Development)<br />

• Glasgow Metropolitan College, Alison McCandlish (Teaching Fellow)<br />

• <strong>Historic</strong> <strong>Scotland</strong> Technical Conservation Group, Ali Davey (Project Manager),<br />

• <strong>Scottish</strong> Enterprise, Brenda Joyce (Senior Executive)<br />

• <strong>Scottish</strong> Qualifications Authority, Diane Anderson (Qualifications Manager)<br />

• <strong>Scottish</strong> Stone Liaison Group, Colin Tennant (Chief Executive)<br />

• <strong>Skills</strong> Development <strong>Scotland</strong>, Declan McGrath (Senior <strong>Skills</strong> Executive)<br />

• Telford College, Edinburgh, John Laing (Head of Dept. (Construction Projects)<br />

The Project Board comprised this membership in order to ensure that the audit was<br />

progressed in a manner which is relevant to the needs of those involved in the<br />

traditional building crafts skills sector, and the overall aim of the scoping exercise<br />

could be achieved.<br />

Consultation<br />

In ensuring that a comprehensive analysis of the necessary skills was made, this<br />

exercise consulted a number of traditional building skills experts both in-house and<br />

externally. This process took advantage both of <strong>Historic</strong> <strong>Scotland</strong>’s own expertise<br />

in particular fields, and where necessary, consulted with known and trusted<br />

contractors and traditional building skills experts and professionals. This<br />

consultation was not intended to be an industry consultation exercise (which will<br />

form the next stage in this audit); it was purely in the interest of compiling a<br />

provisional breakdown or ‘wish list’ of the necessary skills in the practice of the<br />

identified trades. In a number of instances the relevant qualifications were read<br />

and considered by the experts and professionals in order to identify any<br />

shortcomings, however in most cases it was deemed more conducive to compile<br />

‘wish lists’ to later compare with qualifications.<br />

What has been analysed<br />

<strong>Skills</strong><br />

The first step of the project was to identify which trades can be classed as<br />

“traditional”. A list of “traditional” building skills was drafted and agreed by the<br />

Project Board as outlined below in Table 1.<br />

buildings was compiled by the Project Team for each trade (with the assistance of in-house expertise and that of<br />

known and trusted partners).<br />

Qualifications<br />

For the purposes of this report, only accredited qualifications to SVQ level 2 and<br />

above were included in the research.<br />

In order to identify what qualifications exist, and which skills are taught as part of<br />

these, a variety of written data was analysed. This comprised documentation relating<br />

to over 60 courses such as <strong>Scottish</strong> Vocational Qualification information sheets and<br />

course outlines as well as 5 TAPS, over 400 NOS and 126 unit descriptors.<br />

It is important to note however that knowledge and experience is gained by<br />

individuals on-site as well as in College, therefore even though a particular skill<br />

may appear not to be covered as part of a qualification, it may be incorporated as<br />

part of on-site training with the apprentice’s host contractor. It has been<br />

impossible to determine this from the data analysed as part of this project.<br />

Qualification Delivery<br />

A desktop survey was carried out to identify which colleges across <strong>Scotland</strong> deliver<br />

which qualifications. This data was used to compile a database which is broken<br />

into trade area, qualification types and geographical location.<br />

Limitations of the Project<br />

In many instances, the generality of the wording of National Occupational Standards<br />

and Unit Descriptors has made it difficult to determine whether or not, and indeed<br />

to what extent, certain skills from the wish-list are covered by the current skills<br />

training. This has limited the degree of depth that this scoping exercise could achieve.<br />

The statistics outlined in this report take into account both mandatory and<br />

optional units. However, colleges delivering these qualifications do not necessarily<br />

deliver all of the corresponding optional units.<br />

As already stated above, many additional skills outwith those specifically listed in the<br />

NOS and unit descriptors are taught on-site when individuals are working with their<br />

host contractor. It has not been possible within the scope of this project to identify and<br />

list all of these skills. However, the number of projects that contractors undertake on<br />

traditional properties varies considerably, consequently the amount of on-site training<br />

individuals receive in traditional skills will vary widely from contractor to contractor.<br />

Executive<br />

Summary<br />

Background and purpose of the <strong>Scottish</strong> <strong>Traditional</strong> <strong>Building</strong> <strong>Skills</strong> <strong>Audit</strong><br />

<strong>Scoping</strong> Exercise (STBSASE)<br />

<strong>Traditional</strong>ly constructed (pre 1919) dwellings make up approximately 20% of<br />

<strong>Scotland</strong>’s building stock 3 . The <strong>Scottish</strong> construction Industry generates £12<br />

billion 4 of turnover, and represents over 7% of the <strong>Scottish</strong> economy in terms of<br />

gross domestic product at basic prices. Repair, maintenance and improvement<br />

accounts for approximately 46% of the total construction industry output, of<br />

which one third relates directly to pre 1919 buildings (accounting for<br />

approximately £1.2 billion).<br />

It is therefore fundamental that an appropriately skilled workforce with<br />

understanding and knowledge of traditional buildings is available to care for these<br />

properties; both in the interests of the sustainability of the building stock, and the<br />

welfare of building users and occupants. Poorly designed and executed works<br />

carry serious health and safety risks as highlighted in 2000 by the tragic Ryan’s Bar<br />

incident in Edinburgh which resulted in a fatality.<br />

This report is designed to follow up and develop recent studies by the National<br />

Heritage Training Group, <strong>Scottish</strong> Stone Liaison Group and others to assess and<br />

quantify existing training opportunities and to identify gaps in current<br />

qualification provision. This is the first action in the Strategic Partnership<br />

Agreement between <strong>Historic</strong> <strong>Scotland</strong>, Construction<strong>Skills</strong> and the <strong>Scottish</strong><br />

Qualifications Authority in this area and will build on the successful introduction in<br />

2008 of the National Progression Award in Masonry Conservation. <strong>Scottish</strong><br />

Enterprise are also a key partner in the STBSASE, with the <strong>Scottish</strong> Stone Liaison<br />

Group, Glasgow Metropolitan College, Edinburgh’s Telford College, Learn Direct &<br />

Methodology and limitations<br />

The project board agreed the STBSASE remit and methodology, ensuring that it is<br />

progressed in a manner which is relevant to the needs of those involved in the<br />

traditional building crafts skills sector. Available documentation relating to over 60<br />

courses such as SVQ information sheets and course outlines as well as 5 TAPS, over<br />

400 NOS and 126 unit descriptors was analysed.<br />

The STBSASE has concentrated purely on this taught curriculum data, it should be<br />

recognised that vital knowledge and experience will also be gained by individuals<br />

on-site as well as in College and further study would be necessary to gain a picture<br />

of on site training, which is outwith this project remit.<br />

apprenticeship to advanced craft level.<br />

While only 25% of the wish-list skills were found to be included in the Bricklaying/<br />

Brickwork SVQ levels 2 and 3, by comparison, 60% were included in the Brickwork<br />

TAPs. A further 25% was covered by Advanced Craft brickwork, although there is<br />

some cross-over in the wish-list skills found in each course.<br />

While these figures are encouraging, some important wish-list skills are not covered<br />

by any current training provision. For example, the missing skills include methods<br />

of cleaning bricks. This could be considered a serious omission as the use of overly<br />

aggressive methods of cleaning, such as grit blasting or pressure washing, can<br />

remove the surface skin of bricks and lead to accelerated corrosion. The making<br />

and use of lime mortars is also not covered; the use of hard cement mortars to<br />

point brickwork can also lead to accelerated corrosion and decay.<br />

Carpentry & joinery<br />

Carpentry and Joinery skills are covered by two core trade qualifications; namely<br />

Carpentry & Joinery SVQ / TAPs and Shopfitting SVQ. While only 57% of the wishlist<br />

skills are covered by Carpentry and Joinery SVQ levels 2 and 3, a total of 87% is<br />

covered by the TAPs. Shopfitting on the other hand, to SVQ level 3, only covers<br />

33% of the wish-list skills (which is to be expected as this is not a qualification<br />

which deals exclusively with carpentry and joinery). If a student progresses to<br />

Advanced Craft, a further 10% of the wish-list skills is covered by the qualification,<br />

although there is some cross over of content between the two. The main omission<br />

in training provision appears to be recording, although hand drawing is generally<br />

covered. And while the replacement of sash chords is taught, no other aspect of<br />

making or repairing sash and case windows appears to be which is a considerable<br />

omission where traditional buildings are concerned.<br />

Nevertheless, skills such as setting out and manufacturing a section of traditional<br />

timber panelling; understanding causes of damage: treatment of insects, damp, rot<br />

and fungus; repairing the foot of a common rafter or ground floor joist and<br />

replacing the bottom rail of external door are all covered.<br />

At the time of writing, 22 colleges deliver accredited courses in carpentry & joinery<br />

while only one college delivers an accredited course in shopfitting.<br />

Drystane dyking<br />

LANTRA has recently developed a National Occupational Standard specifically for<br />

drystane dyking. LANTRA awards a certificate in drystane dyking, currently the only<br />

accredited qualification available in the UK (Certificate: master Craftsman – Dry<br />

Stone Walling – levels 1, 2 and 3). The current NOS on dry-stone walling has been<br />

developed around the Dry Stone Walling Association’s Lantra Awards-approved<br />

‘Craftsman Certification Scheme’. The Drystone Walling Association has stated that<br />

the NOS covers everything required for the construction, repair and maintenance of<br />

traditional drystone walls.<br />

No <strong>Scottish</strong> college delivers this qualification.<br />

Earth, clay & turf<br />

At the time of writing, there are no accredited qualifications available for working<br />

or building with earth, clay or turf.<br />

There are some non-SQA accredited short professional development/ practical<br />

training courses which exist in this area, hosted by the <strong>Scottish</strong> Lime Centre Trust.<br />

Outside <strong>Scotland</strong>, courses are available at the Centre for Alternative Technology in<br />

Powys (which has courses in building with earth, natural rendering with clay<br />

plaster).<br />

Energy efficiency<br />

Courses relating to energy efficiency fall into a number of categories. There are<br />

courses accredited by plumbing and electrical organisations relating to the<br />

installation of renewable technologies, usually of a short duration and undertaken<br />

by tradespeople already qualified in their chosen field, offered by five <strong>Scottish</strong><br />

colleges.<br />

HNC and HND courses are available which cover some aspects of energy efficiency.<br />

However, it has not been possible to determine from the available information<br />

whether these courses cover the skills as specified in the below wish-list in any way.<br />

These courses comprise of both practical and theoretical training; the main courses<br />

in <strong>Scotland</strong> are provided by <strong>Scottish</strong> Agricultural College, and a number of other<br />

courses are available outside <strong>Scotland</strong> (such as a number of City and Guilds<br />

<strong>Scottish</strong> <strong>Traditional</strong> <strong>Building</strong> <strong>Skills</strong> <strong>Audit</strong> <strong>Scoping</strong> Exercise<br />

19


certificates). Similarly there are theoretical courses which aim to cover issues within<br />

environmental and sustainability issues, of various durations. These have not been<br />

looked at in detail as they do not relate to the main remit of the STBSASE and it<br />

has not been possible to determine the degree of inclusion of issues regarding<br />

traditional buildings and the adaptation of the existing building stock.<br />

Construction <strong>Skills</strong> are currently carrying out an audit of energy efficiency training<br />

and qualifications for the new-build sector.<br />

External work/landscaping<br />

22 <strong>Scottish</strong> colleges teach landscaping-related courses, many of which contain<br />

elements of work which could be considered to be linked to the conservation or<br />

traditional features in the built environment. In addition the <strong>Scottish</strong> Lime Centre<br />

Trust offers courses which are relevant to external features landscaping and<br />

maintenance such as rubble wall building and repair.<br />

Initially, the results of the survey appear promising for this area; a number of<br />

accredited qualifications cover 86% of the wish-list skills in total. However, this is<br />

spread over a number of different qualifications that do not form one cohesive<br />

qualification progression route. For example, Amenity Horticulture (Landscaping)<br />

SVQ Levels 2 and 3 cover 43% of the wish-list skills, while only 29% is covered by<br />

the Horticulture HN. Independently of those qualifications, General <strong>Building</strong><br />

Operations (Construction Level 3) covers 57% of the skills, while 29% are covered<br />

separately by the NPA Roads Maintenance.<br />

This means that the highest percentage of wish-list skills covered by any one<br />

qualification is 57% (General <strong>Building</strong> Operations (Construction Level 3)).<br />

Flagstone floors<br />

The skills for working with flag floors are not covered by one specific qualification<br />

devoted entirely to floors. Instead, this is an area covered by a number of different<br />

qualifications. The main qualifications which relate to flag floors are<br />

apprenticeships in wall and floor tiling or floor covering operations. The highest<br />

percentage of wish-list skills covered by any of these qualifications is just 50%<br />

(TAPS wall and floor tiling). When the total number of wish-list skills is averaged<br />

across all available qualifications, 44% of the wish-list skills are not covered by any<br />

qualification at all.<br />

Glazing<br />

No Glazing Installation or Glazing Maintenance SVQ’s are currently delivered by<br />

colleges in <strong>Scotland</strong>.<br />

Glazing in traditional buildings encompasses a diverse range of window types and<br />

materials, including sash and case windows, casement windows, fixed lights and<br />

leaded lights. Basic glazing overlaps with the carpentry and joinery qualification<br />

route (SVQ) such as replacing simple panes of damaged glass. The two glazing<br />

qualifications cover 86% of the wish-list skills, however there are a number of key<br />

skills which are not covered by current training provision including the conservation<br />

of original material, the production and replacement of timber components and<br />

glazing to iron structures and shopfronts. Understanding traditional glass types<br />

and fixings, and methods (and related issues) of protection also do not appear to<br />

be covered by current training provision.<br />

Graveyards<br />

The main qualification covering practical work to graveyard structures is the<br />

memorial masonry option route of SVQ stonemasonry levels 2-3, however no<br />

college currently delivers this qualification in <strong>Scotland</strong>. Other qualifications cover<br />

related works such as paths and boundaries and these are shown under the<br />

“external work and landscaping” section of this report.<br />

The memorial masonry option covers 82% of the skills wish-list, with the main omissions<br />

being specific methods of fixing and securing memorials and use of lime based<br />

mortar (the type and mix is not mentioned in corresponding qualifications and NOS).<br />

Metal roofing<br />

Both roofing qualifications and plumbing qualifications incorporate varying<br />

degrees of training in sheet metal working. While 65% of the wish-list skills for<br />

metal roofing are covered (and a further 12% are partially covered) by the<br />

plumbing qualifications assessed, only 47% are covered by roofing qualifications.<br />

Five colleges cover roofing apprenticeships and twelve cover plumbing. There are<br />

overlaps between plumbing and roofing, although plumbing does not cover<br />

decorative detailing, rolling, shaping and forming metals or sarking and traditional<br />

timber, and roofing does not cover the fixing or welding of metals.<br />

<strong>Traditional</strong> Metalworking<br />

There is currently no accredited training provision in <strong>Scotland</strong> for traditional<br />

blacksmithing, wrought iron production or iron-founding.<br />

However, a number of qualifications exist which are delivered by a handful of<br />

colleges in England (relating specifically to blacksmithing), while several NOS exist<br />

for iron-founding and traditional greensand moulding.<br />

Blacksmithing and wrought iron production<br />

No qualifications or NOS exist relating to wrought iron production.<br />

A heritage ironworking NOS is currently being developed (March 2010), and a new<br />

heritage blacksmithing qualification will be developed from this.<br />

A number of accredited qualifications are currently being delivered by colleges in<br />

England relating to blacksmithing in general which include traditional aspects of<br />

blacksmithing as well as repairing traditional metalwork. These qualifications include:<br />

BA (Hons) Artist Blacksmithing (awarded by University of Wales)<br />

BTEC National Diploma in Blacksmithing and Metalwork – to Level 3<br />

BTEC National Certificate in Blacksmithing and Metal Working<br />

NVQ’s are also available and delivered by a variety of English colleges, including<br />

welding and metalwork to NVQ level 2.<br />

Iron Founding<br />

No qualifications are delivered in <strong>Scotland</strong> relating to traditional iron founding or<br />

moulding techniques.<br />

Some NOS do exist which cover specifically traditional techniques. However,<br />

desktop research has only revealed three training providers in the UK (England<br />

only) delivering units derived from these.<br />

Painting & Decorating<br />

The qualifications which relate to the painting and decorating skills wish-list are<br />

SVQ levels 2 and 3 in painting and decorating, Advanced Craft Painting and<br />

Decorating, HNC Sign Design and Graphics, HND Architectural Conservation and<br />

HNC Painting and Decorating Supervision. The Painting and Decorating SVQ levels<br />

<strong>Scottish</strong> <strong>Traditional</strong> <strong>Building</strong> <strong>Skills</strong> <strong>Audit</strong> <strong>Scoping</strong> Exercise<br />

22


2 and 3 cover 63% of the wish-list skills. The skills not covered mainly relate to<br />

manufacturing of painting and decorating materials, and specialist skills or<br />

applications. All of the relevant qualifications seem to focus on the interpretation<br />

of given specifications rather than the assessment of historic paint schemes and the<br />

techniques which may be appropriate in such instances.<br />

It should be noted that some of these skills are covered in qualifications outwith<br />

the apprenticeship route, so units do exist which contain elements of the missing<br />

wish-list skills.<br />

Thirteen colleges currently offer painting and decorating apprenticeship courses,<br />

and 9 offer Advanced Craft. In addition, several provide introductory/ ESF courses<br />

and four offer HNC Painting and Decorating supervision, with only the <strong>Scottish</strong><br />

Lime Centre Trust offering a traditional decoration-based course.<br />

Pattern Making<br />

There is currently no training provision for traditional architectural pattern-making<br />

in <strong>Scotland</strong> although pattern making skills are taught as part of a number of<br />

courses delivered in England (though these focus primarily on modern pattern<br />

making techniques). Carpentry and Joinery SVQ qualifications do cover some<br />

related skills such as carving and machining skills, though these would not be<br />

specifically tailored for pattern-making.<br />

The Engineering Woodworking, Pattern and Model Making (SEMTA) NOS Suite<br />

also covers aspects of traditional pattern-making, though this does not appear to<br />

be delivered in <strong>Scotland</strong>.<br />

Plasterwork<br />

The main qualifications covering the plasterwork skills wish-list are the apprenticeship<br />

in plasterwork, advanced craft plasterwork and HND Architectural conservation<br />

(which contains a practical unit on introductory plastering techniques and theory).<br />

74% of the skills wish-list is covered overall, but the main omissions at<br />

apprenticeship level (listed below) relate to lime-specific work and traditional<br />

techniques (for example use of expanded metal lath is covered, but timber lath and<br />

plaster is not mentioned in the TAPS, and the mixing of mortars is covered, but<br />

not specifically lime mortar).<br />

<strong>Scottish</strong> <strong>Traditional</strong> <strong>Building</strong> <strong>Skills</strong> <strong>Audit</strong> <strong>Scoping</strong> Exercise<br />

23


Only 51 % of the wish-list skills are covered if an individual completes both the TAPS<br />

and Advanced Craft, although a further 10% of the wishlist skills are partially covered.<br />

Key skills such as understanding lime, the application and curing of flat lime<br />

plaster, applied decoration, horse-hair plaster and papier-maché, scagliola and<br />

compo are not taught as part of any currently available qualification.<br />

Four colleges currently teach plastering apprenticeship courses, three of which offer<br />

advanced craft.<br />

Roofing<br />

The roofing TAPS covers 68% of the wish-list skills, while Advanced Craft covers<br />

76%. However, skills such as understanding the use of slate in terms of its geology<br />

is not covered even at Advanced Craft level. Aspects concerning pantiles and<br />

rainwater goods are also not covered.<br />

Areas that appear to be under-represented in current training provision are<br />

predominantly traditional roof coverings including stone-slate roofs, traditional<br />

terracotta pan-tiles, and rosemary tiles.<br />

As previously outlined above, Roofing occupation qualifications only cover 47% of<br />

the wish-list skills for metal roofing.<br />

Stained & Leaded Glass<br />

There are several qualifications relating to stained glass ranging from NQ to BSc<br />

level. These are offered by five colleges, although their primary focus is the design<br />

and production of new glass rather than the repair of existing or historic glass.<br />

Some art and design courses also include stained glass work, although again it has<br />

not been possible to assess the degree to which any historic work is examined or<br />

repair techniques discussed and implemented.<br />

Stonemasonry<br />

While the TAPS covers just 13% of the wishlist of skills, if an individual continues<br />

to Advanced Craft, this percentage rises to 41% . This still leaves a shortfall of 59%<br />

of wishlist skills not being taught to stonemasonry apprentices.<br />

<strong>Scottish</strong> <strong>Traditional</strong> <strong>Building</strong> <strong>Skills</strong> <strong>Audit</strong> <strong>Scoping</strong> Exercise<br />

24


However, if an individual continues on to complete the National Progression Award<br />

in Conservation Masonry, this increases again to 78%. There is potential for the<br />

remaining 22% to be covered by a future PDA which has yet to be developed.<br />

The wishlist skills that are not covered by any currently available qualification are<br />

important ones; the ability to point masonry below 5 mm is an essential skill to<br />

retaining the character of many traditional masonry buildings. Of perhaps even<br />

greater importance is a sound understanding of stone-matching, a skill which is<br />

not presently covered by any qualification.<br />

Thatching<br />

The qualification which covers thatching is the SVQ level 3 roofing occupations<br />

(construction) (thatching option route). Until recently, Inverness College offered an<br />

SVQ qualification in thatching, though at the time of printing this qualification is<br />

not delivered by any colleges in <strong>Scotland</strong>.<br />

83% of the wish-list skills are covered by this qualification although the units<br />

appear to cover the interpretation of given information and specifications rather<br />

than assessing a methodology for progression of work.<br />

Whilst the unit “thatch roof structures with specialist features” does contain<br />

references to using local styles and materials it does not indicate whether the<br />

recognition of different traditions is covered or whether specific regional methods<br />

of fixing are taught or assessed. Nor is it clear whether the sourcing and gathering<br />

of traditional / local materials is covered by the qualification.<br />

Wall & Floor Tiling<br />

The two main qualifications covering this area are the wall and floor tiling<br />

apprenticeship routes and floor covering occupations SVQ level 3 with a small<br />

amount of skills are covered by plastering SVQ’s.<br />

Overall, 8% of the skills wish-list is not covered and 25% is only partially covered<br />

(these skills mainly relate to the sourcing and understanding of traditional<br />

materials).<br />

At apprenticeship level this pattern of coverage is similar, with 75% of the wish-list<br />

covered or partially covered.<br />

Report<br />

Findings<br />

REPORT<br />

FINDINGS<br />

BRICKWORK<br />

While only 25% of the wish-list skills were found to be included in the Bricklaying/<br />

Brickwork SVQ levels 2 and 3, by comparison, 60% were included in the Brickwork<br />

TAPs. A further 25% was covered by Advanced Craft brickwork, although there is<br />

some cross-over in the wish-list skills found in each course.<br />

While these figures are encouraging, some important wish-list skills are not covered<br />

by any current training provision. For example, the missing skills include methods<br />

of cleaning bricks. This could be considered a serious omission as the use of overly<br />

aggressive methods of cleaning, such as grit blasting or pressure washing, can<br />

remove the surface skin of bricks and lead to accelerated corrosion. The making<br />

and use of lime mortars is also not covered; the use of hard cement mortars to<br />

point brickwork can also lead to accelerated corrosion and decay.<br />

However, in many cases it has been difficult to confirm with any certainty that<br />

skills are not covered, as NOS and TAPS content does include “repair” and<br />

“maintenance” – these terms could be taken to incorporate a variety of skills. And<br />

while efflorescence is covered specifically in the TAPs, it has not been possible to<br />

determine whether other conservation, repair and maintenance issues are also<br />

covered by the TAPs.<br />

CARPENTRY & JOINERY<br />

Carpentry and Joinery skills are covered by two core trade qualifications; namely<br />

Carpentry & Joinery SVQ / TAPs and Shopfitting SVQ. While only 57% of the wishlist<br />

skills are covered by Carpentry and Joinery SVQ levels 2 and 3, a total of 87% is<br />

covered by the TAPs. Shopfitting on the other hand, to SVQ level 3, only covers<br />

33% of the wish-list skills (which is to be expected as this is not a qualification<br />

which deals exclusively with carpentry and joinery). If a student progresses to<br />

Advanced Craft, a further 10% of the wish-list skills is covered by the qualification,<br />

although there is some cross over of content between the two. The main omission<br />

in training provision appears to be recording, although hand drawing is generally<br />

covered. And while the replacement of sash chords is taught, no other aspect of<br />

making or repairing sash and case windows appears to be. Nevertheless, skills such<br />

as setting out and manufacturing a section of traditional timber panelling;<br />

understanding causes of damage: treatment of insects, damp, rot and fungus;<br />

repairing the foot of a common rafter or ground floor joist and replacing the<br />

bottom rail of external door are all covered.<br />

At the time of writing, 22 colleges deliver accredited courses in carpentry & joinery<br />

while only one college delivers an accredited course in shopfitting.<br />

DRYSTANE DYKING<br />

LANTRA has recently developed a National Occupational Standard specifically for<br />

drystane dyking. LANTRA awards a certificate in drystane dyking, currently the only<br />

accredited qualification available in the UK (Certificate: master Craftsman – Dry<br />

Stone Walling – levels 1, 2 and 3). No <strong>Scottish</strong> college delivers this qualification.<br />

The current NOS on dry-stone walling has been developed around the Dry Stone<br />

Walling Association’s Lantra Awards-approved ‘Craftsman Certification Scheme’.<br />

The Drystone Walling Association has stated that the NOS covers everything<br />

required for the construction, repair and maintenance of traditional drystone walls.<br />

Although still principally viewed as a land-based occupation, there is an increasing<br />

percentage of commercial dry-stone walling taking place in an urban environment,<br />

often in connection to new builds as well as the continued traditional repair,<br />

reinstatement, maintenance, and adaptation of traditional and historic dry- stone<br />

dykes in a rural context.<br />

The Dry Stone Walling Association has intimated that there may be scope to<br />

develop NOS provision in the area of commercial practice such as working<br />

relationships, clients, legalities, liability, planning issues, bringing in structural<br />

engineers and contractor relationships etc.<br />

There are also a number of leisure courses available that do not offer an accredited<br />

qualification.<br />

ENERGY EFFICIENCY<br />

Courses relating to energy efficiency fall into a number of categories. There are<br />

courses accredited by plumbing and electrical organisations relating to the<br />

installation of renewable technologies, usually of a short duration and undertaken by<br />

tradespeople already qualified in their chosen field, offered by five <strong>Scottish</strong> colleges.<br />

HNC and HND courses are available which cover some aspects of energy efficiency.<br />

However, it has not been possible to determine from the available information<br />

whether these courses cover the skills as specified in the below wish-list in any way.<br />

These courses comprise of both practical and theoretical training; the main courses<br />

in <strong>Scotland</strong> are provided by <strong>Scottish</strong> Agricultural College, and a number of other<br />

courses are available outside <strong>Scotland</strong> (such as a number of City and Guilds<br />

certificates). Similarly there are theoretical courses which aim to cover issues within<br />

environmental and sustainability issues, of various durations. These have not been<br />

looked at in detail as they do not relate to the main remit of the STBSASE and it<br />

has not been possible to determine the degree of inclusion of issues regarding<br />

traditional buildings and the adaptation of the existing building stock.<br />

Construction <strong>Skills</strong> are currently carrying out an audit of energy efficiency training<br />

and qualifications for the new-build sector.<br />

EXTERNAL<br />

WORK/LANDSCAPING<br />

Initially, the results of the survey appear promising for this area; a number of<br />

accredited qualifications cover 86% of the wish-list skills in total. However, this is<br />

spread over a number of different qualifications that do not form one cohesive<br />

qualification progression route. For example, Amenity Horticulture (Landscaping)<br />

SVQ Levels 2 and 3 cover 43% of the wish-list skills, while only 29% is covered by<br />

the Horticulture HN. Independently of those qualifications, General <strong>Building</strong><br />

Operations (Construction Level 3) covers 57% of the skills, while 29% are covered<br />

FLAGSTONE FLOORS<br />

The skills for working with flag floors are not covered by one specific qualification<br />

devoted entirely to floors. Instead, this is an area covered by a number of different<br />

qualifications. The main qualifications which relate to flag floors are<br />

apprenticeships in wall and floor tiling or floor covering operations. The highest<br />

percentage of wish-list skills covered by any of these qualifications is just 50%<br />

(TAPS wall and floor tiling). When the total number of wish-list skills is averaged<br />

across all available qualifications, 44% of the wish-list skills are not covered by any<br />

qualification at all.<br />

to flagstone floors)<br />

GLAZING<br />

Glazing to traditional buildings encompasses a diverse range of window types and<br />

materials, including sash and case windows, casement windows, fixed lights and<br />

leaded lights. The need to have an understanding of these materials and<br />

components is not restricted to glaziers alone; joiners also may need to have the<br />

skills to replace damaged glass in timber window frames, and this is covered to a<br />

basic level through the carpentry and joinery qualification route (SVQ).<br />

This section deals specifically with timber and cast iron window frames. Leaded<br />

lights are dealt with later in this report.<br />

While both the Glazing Maintenance Level 2 and 3, and Glazing Installation level 2<br />

and 3 each cover 86% of the wish-list skills, there are a number of key skills which<br />

are not covered by current training provision. These include the conservation of<br />

original material, the production and replacement of timber components and<br />

glazing to iron structures and shopfronts. Understanding traditional glass types,<br />

fixings, and methods (and related issues) of protection also do not appear to be<br />

covered by current training provision, although sprigging may be covered by one<br />

unit of the SVQ which covers “fit into frame”.<br />

GRAVEYARDS<br />

The main qualification covering practical work to graveyard structures is the<br />

memorial masonry option route of SVQ stonemasonry levels 2-3, however no<br />

college currently delivers this qualification in <strong>Scotland</strong>. Other qualifications cover<br />

related works such as paths and boundaries and these are shown under the<br />

“external work and landscaping” section of this report.<br />

Some councils have a designated team responsible for the care and maintenance of<br />

cemeteries. A number of <strong>Scotland</strong>’s historic cemeteries have stones that are<br />

dangerous and pose critical health and safety risk.<br />

A significant proportion of skills required are covered by SVQ Stonemasonry:<br />

Memorial masonry option. This option qualification covers 82% of the skills wishlist,<br />

however, although repair and maintenance of memorials is covered, but the<br />

specific method of fixing and securing, or mortar type/ mix is not mentioned in<br />

corresponding qualifications and NOS.<br />

METAL ROOFING<br />

Both roofing qualifications and plumbing qualifications incorporate varying<br />

degrees of training in sheet metal working. While 65% of the wish-list skills for<br />

metal roofing are covered (and a further 12% are partially covered) by the<br />

plumbing qualifications assessed, only 47% are covered by roofing qualifications.<br />

Roofing qualifications do not cover cold bossing or joint types. Nor is the fixing or<br />

TRADITIONAL METALWORKING<br />

The term traditional metalworking covers a broad range of skills and materials.<br />

However, for the purposes of this scoping exercise the authors have not included<br />

bronze or other non-ferrous metals (although many of the skills associated with<br />

ferrous metals apply to non-ferrous metals). Equally, while conservation<br />

engineering is an important sector for the repair and maintenance of traditional<br />

metalwork, however it was deemed too broad a skill-set to incorporate into this<br />

study as the term applies not only to metalwork but also a range of other materials<br />

including timber, stone and concrete. This report has focussed instead on<br />

blacksmithing (including wrought iron production) and iron founding.<br />

There is currently no accredited training provision in <strong>Scotland</strong> for traditional<br />

blacksmithing, wrought iron production or iron-founding (or conservation engineering).<br />

However, a number of qualifications are delivered in England relating either<br />

specifically or tangentially to some of these skills.<br />

Blacksmithing<br />

No accredited training in blacksmithing is delivered in <strong>Scotland</strong>, and only a handful<br />

of colleges in England deliver accredited blacksmithing training (outlined below).<br />

However, a Heritage <strong>Skills</strong> Blacksmithing NOS is currently being developed (March<br />

2010), and it is probable that a new heritage blacksmithing qualification will arise<br />

from this. Hereford College has noted interest in developing such a qualification<br />

for delivery at that college, but it is uncertain at this point whether there will be<br />

any uptake amongst colleges in <strong>Scotland</strong>.<br />

In addition to the Heritage <strong>Skills</strong> Blacksmithing NOS, a number of Units exist which<br />

form part of the Blacksmith Option Route of the Heritage <strong>Skills</strong> (Construction)<br />

Level 3 NVQ (National Vocational Qualification). The units are listed below, but are<br />

not delivered in <strong>Scotland</strong>:<br />

• Repair, Restore, Conserve, Replace or Maintain Forged Heritage Metalwork VR 621<br />

• Clean, prepare and protect heritage metalwork VR 622<br />

• Heat, weld or solder heritage metalwork VR 623<br />

• Thermal cutting metal for heritage work VR 624<br />

• Dismantle and fix heritage metalwork VR 625<br />

<strong>Scottish</strong> <strong>Traditional</strong> <strong>Building</strong> <strong>Skills</strong> <strong>Audit</strong> <strong>Scoping</strong> Exercise<br />

87


A number of accredited qualifications are currently being delivered by Warwickshire<br />

College and Hereford College of Arts in conjunction with Hereford College of<br />

Technology in England relating to blacksmithing in general. These include:<br />

• BA (Hons) Artist Blacksmithing (awarded by University of Wales)<br />

• BTEC National Diploma in Blacksmithing and Metalwork – to Level 3<br />

• BTEC National Certificate in Blacksmithing and Metal Working<br />

A range of Edexcel BTEC qualifications are available: BTEC Level 3 Certificate,<br />

BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma, BTEC Level 3 Diploma and BTEC Level 3<br />

Extended Diploma in Blacksmithing and Metalworking.<br />

A number of other English colleges deliver the BTEC National Certificate and<br />

National Award, including Warwickshire College. Plumpton College also delivers the<br />

National Diploma in Blacksmithing and Metlaworking.<br />

The BTEC National Diploma covers aspects of forgework, heat treatment and<br />

corrosion control, but also the history of blacksmithing, historical and design research<br />

and the merits and techniques of preservation, conservation and restoration.<br />

A variety of other college certificates and leisure courses are also available in<br />

England (not <strong>Scotland</strong>) in areas including metalworking, light engineering and<br />

decorative metalwork.<br />

NVQ’s are also available and delivered by a variety of English colleges, including<br />

welding and metalwork to NVQ level 2.<br />

A multitude of accredited welding a fabrication qualifications are available in both<br />

<strong>Scotland</strong> and England, though these do not relate specifically to traditional<br />

blacksmithing skills.<br />

Iron Founding<br />

No qualifications are delivered in <strong>Scotland</strong> relating to traditional iron founding or<br />

moulding techniques. <strong>Historic</strong>ally, training in this area was delivered by Falkirk<br />

College, but this training delivery came to an end several decades ago.<br />

Nevertheless, some NOS do exist which cover specifically traditional techniques.<br />

However, desktop research has only revealed three training providers in the UK<br />

(England only) delivering units derived from these.<br />

<strong>Scottish</strong> <strong>Traditional</strong> <strong>Building</strong> <strong>Skills</strong> <strong>Audit</strong> <strong>Scoping</strong> Exercise<br />

88


These training providers are:<br />

The Sheffield College - delivers Engineering BTEC First Diploma Level 2 from which<br />

students can progress to a National Diploma or an apprenticeship in engineering.<br />

Wiltshire College - offers an NVQ Levels 2 and 3 qualification in Materials<br />

Processing and Finishing.<br />

NLT Training Services - deliver an NVQ Level 2 qualification in Metal Processing<br />

and Allied Operations as well as in Materials Processing and Finishing. However,<br />

NTL does not appear to deliver units on moulding techniques as the training they<br />

provide seems to be supplementary to these skills already being learnt.<br />

The two suites of NOS from which these qualifications are derived include units on:<br />

• Materials Processing and Finishing<br />

• Unit 4 Producing Sand Moulds Manually (using greensand or chemically<br />

bonded gas activated sand)<br />

• Unit 5 Producing Sand Cores Manually<br />

• Unit 11 Assembling, Core Setting and Closing Sand/Ceramic Moulds<br />

• Unit 14 Casting metal by Manual Means<br />

• Other units cover preparing materials for mould making, melting metal for<br />

casting, preparing a furnace and controlling and treating metal in readiness for<br />

casting.<br />

And:<br />

Metal Processing and Allied Operations<br />

• Unit 18 Form metals<br />

• Unit 14 Cast Metals<br />

Both these units are aimed at teaching students to operate casting machinery and<br />

test metal in preparation for casting rather than any moulding techniques.<br />

The skill of producing patterns for architectural cast ironwork is an important part<br />

of producing castings. The qualifications relating to this particular skill are covered<br />

separately in this report.<br />

Wrought iron production<br />

No NOS or qualifications exist in the UK.<br />

PAINTING & DECORATING<br />

The qualifications which relate to the painting and decorating skills wish-list are<br />

SVQ levels 2 and 3 in painting and decorating, Advanced Craft Painting and<br />

Decorating, HNC Sign Design and Graphics, HND Architectural Conservation and<br />

HNC Painting and Decorating Supervision. The Painting and Decorating SVQ levels<br />

2 and 3 cover 63% of the wish-list skills. The skills not covered mainly relate to<br />

manufacturing of painting and decorating materials, and specialist skills or<br />

applications. All of the relevant qualifications seem to focus on the interpretation<br />

of given specifications rather than the assessment of historic paint schemes and the<br />

techniques which may be appropriate in such instances.<br />

It should be noted that some of these skills are covered in the qualifications outwith<br />

the apprenticeship route, so units do exist which contain elements of the missing<br />

wish-list skills. An example of this is a HNC in Sign Design and Graphics unit (F0N8<br />

34) which asks students to “produce a sign design which meets planning<br />

requirements (including) a listed building or a building in a conservation area”. Only<br />

Edinburgh’s Telford College presently teaches HNC Sign Design and Graphics.<br />

Thirteen colleges currently offer painting and decorating apprenticeship courses,<br />

and 9 offer Advanced Craft. In addition, several provide introductory/ ESF courses<br />

and four offer HNC Painting and Decorating supervision, with only the <strong>Scottish</strong><br />

Lime Centre Trust offering a traditional decoration based course.<br />

PATTERN MAKING<br />

This could be considered a niche market skill, but is nonetheless vital to the<br />

production of good quality replica traditional decorative architectural iron castings.<br />

There is currently no training provision for traditional architectural pattern-making<br />

in <strong>Scotland</strong> although pattern making skills are taught as part of a number of<br />

courses delivered in England though these focus primarily on modern pattern<br />

making techniques. Carpentry and Joinery SVQ qualifications do cover some<br />

related skills such as carving and machining skills, though these would not be<br />

specifically tailored for pattern-making.<br />

PLASTERWORK<br />

The main qualifications covering the plasterwork skills wish-list are the<br />

apprenticeship in plasterwork, advanced craft plasterwork and HND Architectural<br />

Conservation (which contains a practical unit on introductory plastering techniques<br />

and theory).<br />

74% of the skills wish-list is covered overall, but the main omissions at<br />

apprenticeship level (listed below) relate to lime-specific work and traditional<br />

techniques (for example use of expanded metal lath is covered, but timber lath and<br />

plaster is not mentioned in the TAPS, and the mixing of mortars is covered, but<br />

not specifically lime mortar).<br />

Only 51 % of the wish-list skills are covered if an individual completes both the<br />

TAPS and Advanced Craft (though a further 10% is partially covered).<br />

Key skills such as understanding lime, the application and curing of flat lime<br />

plaster, applied decoration, horse-hair plaster and papier-maché, scagliola and<br />

compo are not taught as part of any currently available qualification.<br />

Four colleges currently teach plastering apprenticeship courses, three of which offer<br />

advanced craft.<br />

ROOFING<br />

The main accredited qualifications for roofing are Roofing Occupations SVQ to<br />

Level 3, Advanced Craft Roof Slating, Tiling and Cement Work, and the Roofing<br />

TAPs. There are a number of other qualifications which were also found to cover<br />

skills relevant to roofing, including HND Architectural Conservation, Carpentry &<br />

Joinery SVQ Level 3 and Advanced Craft, Bricklaying SVQ Level 3 and MES<br />

Domestic Plumbing Level 3.<br />

Roofing TAPS covers 68% of the wish-list skills, while Advanced Craft covers 76%.<br />

However, skills such as understanding the use of slate in terms of its geology is not<br />

covered even at Advanced Craft level. Nor are pantiles or rainwater goods amongst<br />

a number of other skills.<br />

Areas that appear to be under-represented in current training provision are<br />

predominantly traditional roof coverings including stone-slate roofs, traditional<br />

terracotta pan-tiles, and rosemary tiles, but also in a number of other important areas.<br />

Whilst it is recognised that many of the skills in relation to current roofing skills<br />

training are transferable, there is an evident lack of training specific to these areas.<br />

As previously outlined above, roofing occupation qualifications only cover 47% of<br />

the wish-list skills for metal roofing.<br />

STAINED & LEADED GLASS<br />

There are several qualifications relating to stained glass ranging from NQ to BSc<br />

and postgraduate level. These courses are offered by a number of colleges,<br />

although their primary focus is the design and production of new glass rather than<br />

the repair of existing or historic glass. Some art and design courses also include<br />

stained glass work, again it has not been possible to assess the degree to which<br />

any historic work is examined or repair techniques discussed and implemented. No<br />

accredited conservation-related courses are available in <strong>Scotland</strong>, though a number<br />

of accredited courses are available in art glass design and decorative glass<br />

production which are strongly art-oriented. Such courses in <strong>Scotland</strong> include:<br />

• Edinburgh College of Art: runs a postgraduate Diploma and Masters Degree in<br />

Glass. Also runs a Degree in Glass and Architectural Glass (Degree)<br />

• Glasgow Metropolitan College: runs a HNC and HND in Art Glass Design<br />

• North Glasgow College: runs a HND in Art Glass Production<br />

A handful of stained glass conservation courses are run in England, by the<br />

University of York and Swansea Metropolitan University for example.<br />

STONEMASONRY<br />

The main qualifications for stonemasonry are Stonemasonry TAPs, Advanced Craft<br />

and the NPA Masonry Conservation. While the TAPS covers just 13% of the wishlist<br />

of skills, if an individual continues to Advanced Craft, this percentage rises to 41% .<br />

This still leaves a shortfall of 59% of wishlist skills not being taught to<br />

Stonemasonry apprentices.<br />

However, if an individual continues on to complete the National Progression Award<br />

in Conservation Masonry, this increases again to 78%. There is potential for the<br />

remaining 22% to be covered by a future PDA which has yet to be developed.<br />

The wishlist skills that are not covered by any currently available qualification are<br />

important ones; the ability to point masonry below 5 mm is an essential skill to<br />

retaining the character of many traditional masonry buildings. Of perhaps even<br />

greater importance is a sound understanding of stone-matching, a skill which is<br />

not presently covered by any qualification.<br />

THATCHING<br />

The qualification which covers thatching is the SVQ level 3 roofing occupations<br />

(construction) (thatching option route). From assessing the written documentation<br />

for this course 83% of the wish-list skills are covered.<br />

The units appear to cover the interpretation of given information and<br />

specifications rather than assessing a methodology for progression of work.<br />

Whilst the unit “thatch roof structures with specialist features” does contain<br />

references to using local styles and materials it does not indicate whether the<br />

recognition of different traditions is covered or whether specific regional methods<br />

of fixing are taught or assessed. Nor is it clear whether the sourcing and gathering<br />

of traditional / local materials is covered by the qualification.<br />

However, there were no <strong>Scottish</strong> colleges offering the Thatching SVQ at the time of<br />

writing (until recently, Inverness College offered this SVQ).<br />

CONCLUSION<br />

The results of this <strong>Scoping</strong> Exercise indicate that there is tremendous variation in<br />

the degree to which current qualifications address the needs of traditional building<br />

skills. The initial findings suggest that plastering, metal roofing and brickwork are<br />

the weakest in terms of qualification content relating specifically to traditional<br />

techniques, with over 40% of wish-list skills not covered by current qualifications in<br />

these areas. At the other end of the scale, the strongest trades appear to be<br />

carpentry & joinery, glazing and thatching, all of which have less than 18% of the<br />

wish-list skills not covered by current qualifications.<br />

However, these statistics are only one half of the story and should be viewed with<br />

caution; if thatching is taken as an example, while statistically this trade area is<br />

well covered by existing qualifications, there is no college in <strong>Scotland</strong> currently<br />

delivering the existing accredited thatching qualification. Equally, the statistics<br />

outlined in this report take into account both mandatory and optional units. In<br />

practice, colleges delivering these qualifications do not necessarily provide all of<br />

the optional units. While these statistics offer a good starting point for our<br />

understanding of qualifications delivery, there is more work to be done to identify<br />

the particular gaps that need to be addressed for specific trades before an overall<br />

strategy can be developed.<br />
