Info for apprentices and learners:
The Heritage Skills Academy brings together experts from across the Restoration Industry who are committed to teaching the skills required to preserve and restore our Pre- and Post-war engineering heritage.
We are located in the heart of Bicester Heritage which has gained international recognition as the UK’s ‘Centre of Excellence for historic motoring and whose location provides an exciting and vibrant environment which embeds new apprentices within the world of specialist craftspeople, historic engineering and cutting edge technology.
With the support of the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs, the Galashan Trust and the Starter Motor Charity, HSA has developed workshop and training facilities dedicated to Heritage Engineering apprenticeships - both on the mechanical and the coach-building and trim routes.
In March 2019 HSA opened a new coach-building and trim facility at Bicester Heritage and in 2021 HSA will be expanding into a new facility. This unique location provides the finest academy in the world for the training and education of the UK’s next generation of world class Heritage Engineers.
