An alliance of those committed to the preservation of engineering heritage and skills

The Federation Skills Trust is a charity registered in England number 1192334 whose charitable object is: "The advancement of education by promoting, whether directly through financial or other support, the training and teaching of engineering skills and processes and by encouraging and supporting the development and transference of skills appertaining to the repair, maintenance, preservation and renovation of all types of heritage transport, historic vehicle and machinery."

The FST and its predecessor have made grants of over £500,000 to support the development of Heritage Engineering Apprenticeships since 2014.

 


Karl Carter

Chair of Trustees


Karl Carter has been actively hands-on in developing the Heritage Engineering programme through his roles as Director of Skills at the FBHVC since 2013 and as deputy-Chair of the Federation Skills Trust.

 

 

Francis Galashan

Chair of Trustees


Founding Chairman of Bicester Heritage, Francis picked up the phone in 2013 and called the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs to see if they could work together to form an apprenticeship programme in classic vehicle restoration. The rest, as they say, is history.

 

David Whale

Trustee


David is well known for his work as a volunteer leading the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs for over 10 years. More recently David has been involved in the establishment of the Federation Skills Trust, a charity spun out of the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs with the objectives of training and teaching engineering skills for the repair, maintenance, preservation and renovation of all types of historic transport, not just motor vehicles.
