Construction apprenticeships and work placements

Hastings Pier Charity is dedicated to the restoration and ongoing maintenance of Hastings Pier. During the construction phase, with the support of Timber Craft UK, we have hosted 6 apprentices and 14 work placements on the construction site.

These work placements give young people still at college the opportunity to gain skills and experience, learn more about careers in the heritage sector, and allow them to build transferable skills such as management and leadership. Through these experiences we hope to inspire and empower young people and give them the skills they need in their future careers.
