The Shipshape Heritage Training Partnership… oh let’s call it SHTP, like they do! – is already scoring successes getting trainees into full-time work. Just one example is Catherine Holt (picture) who gave us an interview, she’s now working at The Historic Dockyard Chatham. She’d had a very tough time trying to get heritage and museum work, despite having excellent qualifications. Then she went through the SHTP (relief!) training, and now finds herself working on the Invincible at Chatham. Home to the Royal Navy across the centuries, Chatham has plenty on for Cat. It’s a great place for a maritime conservator to work, with a centuries-old naval history, and three star exhibits: a classic Victorian sail and steam gunboat (a big one called Gannet), a WWII-era destroyer (HMS Cavalier), and the last RN ship built at Chatham – Cold War-era submarine HMS Ocelot.
