One of the Forum's aims is to build capacity for heritage science by supporting and promoting opportunities for training and skills development, and raising awareness of heritage as a career.
The strategic framework theme of a skilled and diverse heritage science community has five associated strategic outcomes
- Increased engagement with heritage science at school age
- Technical skills and knowledge to address present needs and future requirements of heritage
- A range of accessible apprenticeships and postgraduate opportunities
- Recognition of heritage science as an attractive career
- Citizen heritage scientists
