Environmental Conservation 12 month paid traineeships

Target audience - Secondary S4 to S6 (14-18 year old), College
Trees for Life, an environmental charity based in the Highlands, are going to be recruiting to fill five fully funded traineeships. Currently recruitment is on hold, but hopefully when coronavirus is less of a threat it will resume. The trainees will choose to focus on one area of specialism from deer management and estate maintenance, conservation and landscape planning, people and community engagement or tree nursery horticulture skills. The traineeships will focus on learning by doing (rather than classsroom) and will include an opportunity to work towards recognised qualifications. Applications will be accepted from people over the age of 18 when the traineeship starts and we are very keen for people under 25 to apply, especially from the Highland area. We would be happy to come into schools or colleges to talk about these opportunities, or for anyone interested in applying to come and visit our site in Glenmoriston, near Loch Ness. This project is made possible through funding provided by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
