The National Galleries of Scotland (NGS) received a £611,100 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund under its Skills for the Future programme to support the National Galleries of Scotland HLF Collections Digitisation Traineeships – a training programme for 18-24 year-olds.

The project is a dedicated training programme focusing on developing skills which are in demand throughout the heritage sector. The project’s legacy will provide greater diversity in the work forces of these organisations, while providing greater access for the public to their collections.
