The Longford Academy is a collaborative learning program led by experienced APT specialist practitioner educators. Participants are engaged in site activities aimed at developing and sharing specialist heritage conservation knowledge and skills while also contributing to safeguarding the outstanding universal values of the two sites through practical activities. Activities include information sessions, discussions, inspections, investigations, recording, conservation works and group learning exercises.
Please note that practical works will continue on the Monday and Tuesday of the following week (15 & 16 May) and all participants are invited to continue learning by staying on for these days at no additional fee (accommodation and meals at own cost).
The program is suitable for all levels of committed heritage conservation participants — owners, managers, professionals, trades people, heritage site workers and administrators willing to contribute and share in a collaborative learning environment, potentially under all weather conditions.
