Cirencester College launches UK’s first archaeology apprenticeships

Cirencester College is working in partnership with Cotswold and Albion Archaeology to support the first group of archaeological technician apprentices in the UK.

Jim Grant, Cirencester College principal, said "Cirencester College is delighted to be supporting the first three archaeological technician apprentices.

"Designed by employers, this apprenticeship will provide the highest level of training to enable apprentices to work on excavations and post-excavation analysis, all whilst gaining a thorough understanding of key periods in British archaeology.

"We have a great archaeology team at Cirencester College. Apprentices will be supported by our archaeology lead, Aidan Scott, an experienced archaeologist and one of our very best teachers."

Cllr Kevin Collins, executive member for planning and regeneration at Central Bedfordshire Council, said: "We are delighted to welcome Tegan and Chris, our new archaeological technician apprentices, to Albion Archaeology, Central Bedfordshire Council's archaeological trading unit.

"This new apprenticeship will be exciting for everyone involved and we are very much looking forward to supporting our new recruits on their journey to becoming fully fledged archaeologists."
