The Association of Heritage Engineers writes:

In association with the trade, the AoHE will put together a panel of industry figures who will select those put forward by businesses, colleagues and other organisations*. It will based strictly on merit and contributions to the industry. It will be an honorary title.

The AoHE hopes this will not only help honour and respect the amazingly talented men and women within heritage engineering but also inspire young people entering the business to be nominated and selected to hold the title of ‘Master Craftsman’ in the future and elevate apprentice based training to the position of respect that it deserves.

All nominations must be in by August the 31st of the year with the presentation taking place at the end of November that same year. A maximum of 25 people will be selected each year.

The first awards will be made in November of 2020.  Nominations are now open.
