Icon--the Institute of Conservation--is offering 17 work-based
internships of 6, 12 and 24 months' duration as part of its Heritage
Lottery Funded conservation training bursaries scheme. Interns will
start placements across the UK in September 2006. The scheme aims to
broaden access to careers in conservation and to increase the UK's
fund of conservation skills. Several placements are specifically for
new entrants to conservation from arts, crafts or heritage
backgrounds. Others are for those who have recently graduated from
conservation courses.

Venues include private and public sector conservation workshops from
Aberdeen to Canterbury, Colchester to Cardiff in the following
conservation disciplines: stained glass, stone, preventive,
conservation science, textiles, ceramics, natural sciences,
ethnographic material, metals, archives and books.

Information on all placements and details of eligibility can be
found at <URL:>. Apply by letter or e-mail to
the address below, quoting the reference of the internship you are
applying for and enclosing a cv with the contact details of two
referees familiar with your work. You must also provide a 200-300
word statement on why you are interested in one of these placements.
