Renowned for their support of student conservation training, the Anna Plowden Trust have recently announced that Willard Conservation Ltd has become the Founder Corporate Supporter of the Trust, giving many more students the opportunity to train in the profession.
A charity dedicated to supporting the training of and raising awareness of heritage conservation – the Anna Plowden Trust does wonderful work in giving students the unique opportunity to both study at university and train in work placements. This combination gives students a solid foundation for their future careers, opening up new opportunities and contacts.
One such student is Carol Peacock who was awarded a bursary to complete a one-year fulltime MA course in Conservation at Camberwell. While studying, Carol also completed an internship at the British Museum to complement her studies and MA Major Project. Since then, she has accepted a permanent position at the British Museum to train as a conservator of Chinese Paintings which is a great success for both her, the industry and of course the Anna Plowden Trust.
