Icon Book & Paper Group unites the book and paper conservation community

The Icon Book & Paper Group is dedicated to providing high-quality training. 

The Book & Paper Group ring-fences a substantial proportion of its annual budget to fund events for members that serve their training needs. Their Events & Training Subcommittee provides high-quality training for ‚ÄčContinuing Professional Development and for conservators wishing to bridge skills gaps within their their institutions or practice.

The Committee encourages members to register both their training proposals and requirements. There are four main benefits:

  • Trainers are provided with a realistic and reasonable fee for their skills and time
  • Members are consulted on their training needs and provided with high-quality, specialist training at a heavily subsidised rate
  • Identified training needs can be met by institutions
  • A greater focus provision of regional events

If you have any ideas for training please contact the Book & Paper Group with the subject line "Training Request".
