The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings runs two training programmes for building conservation professionals; the Lethaby Scholarship is aimed at early career architects, surveyors and engineers and the William Morris Fellowship is aimed at early career craftspeople (e.g. stonemasons, plasterers, carpenters, metal workers etc.).

Applications are now open for their 2014 intake and the SPAB are looking for enthusiastic applicants that are willing to learn about all aspects of building conservation and – most importantly how to bring the philosophy of conservative repair into their daily work.
