Ilford trainees who beat 500 applicants find work in heritage
Two Ilford trainees, who beat 500 other applications to get on a heritage scheme, have found work after completing their placements.
Nowrujee Ali and Pavani Srikanda were among the inaugural set of trainees on a programme run by heritage charity Cultural Co-operation and paid for by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Trainees received a bursary of �13,500 and achieved diplomas in cultural heritage. Nowrujee completed her traineeship with Historic Royal Palaces and is now part of the Teach First scheme.
She said: “I gained a valuable insight into the culture and heritage sector and I understand and feel a part of British heritage.”
