In August 2014 the Scottish Council on Archives launched an exciting new training project;Opening up Scotland's Archives; starting in Edinburgh, Dundee, Glasgow and East Lothian. This major new three year trainee / internship project, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

This is a call to create a more diverse workforce, attract new skills and people into archive services especially to work with communities, digital skills, social media and IT; essential to archives of the 21st century. The project offers new routes working in the heritage sector; especially since recent UK wide research shows that Black, Minority and Ethnic groups are significantly under-represented.

You will spend a year working on real-life projects whilst learning new skills that will help you towards a career in the archives and heritage sectors.
