Responding to known skills gaps in the sector, this fellowship report examines workplace training models in cultural materials conservation in Australia, the United States and England. The structures, motivations and benefits of each model are compared, focusing specifically on the development of specialist skills. The author concludes with a series of recommendations for the Australian context, notably that conservation employers leverage existing disciplinary strengths to create more paid learning positions for emerging professionals.
