There are considerable numbers of local authority staff from non-heritage professions such as planners and development control officers whose work affects the management of heritage. With the heritage sector facing considerable economic pressures it is important that awareness of heritage issues is developed amongst this group and that free training is provided to ensure they understand the implications of these issues and who they can work with to ensure that heritage is effectively managed. The Historic England Commission has emphasised the importance of increasing awareness of heritage issues amongst those making planning decisions at a high-level.
This three year project will be delivered in two lots which comprise
1. an annual programme of training courses, and
2. a range of online training resources.
Both lots are aimed at developing the knowledge and skills of non-heritage professionals, or career entry heritage professionals in local authorities, on heritage policy, legislation and management.
A successful project will deliver over the 3-year period, in lot 1 at least 1 400 free training places to the sector, and 230 places for Historic England staff and in Lot 2 at least 10 online training resources in varied mediums.
Tenders are invited to provide the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) with an integrated suite of sample environment equipment for use on the EC Muon Beamlines, which form part of the ISIS Neutron and Muon facility. The equipment includes a 4He cryostat together with dilution fridge and 3He inserts, to enable facility users to conduct experiments from millikelvin temperatures to above room temperature.
An opportunity arises for the design, fabrication, factory acceptance, delivery, installation and commissioning of a High Pressure Rinse System to meet the required specification. This system will be located within a Cleanroom environment on the site of the Science and Technology Facilities Council Daresbury Laboratory in Warrington, and will be used to facilitate the following, as part of an In-Kind Contribution to the European Spallation Source (ESS).
