Building Conservation Masterlasses 2011
Aimed at those who need to develop practical skills and those who need to understand, specify and supervise these skills; the BCMs are relevant for craftsmen, conservators, conservation officers, architects, surveyors, planners, construction managers, specifiers, specialist contractors and archaeologists.
The Professional Development Diploma can be achieved through the successful completion of 10 BCMs and the submission of a final essay. West Dean’s building conservation programme has its origins in the work of English Heritage. The organisation’s training base at Fort Brockhurst in Hampshire was transferred to West Dean in 1997.
