Environmental Conservation is at the heart of The Mountains and The People project and therefore we are excited to be able to offer a range of paid, 6 month training opportunities at both our Balloch and Aboyne training centres.
Delivered by the Outdoor Access Trust for Scotland who have a proven track record of delivering high quality, accredited, employment based training, candidates will be offered the opportunity to complete an SVQ level 2 or above in Environmental Conservation.
Our next trainee intake will start in April 2018 and will be based in Balloch working in the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park. We will be starting the recruitment process for the trainees at the end of January / beginning of February. Applications will be open during February, then the shortlisted candidates will be invited to attend an interview in March. Trainees will begin the 6 month programme on 23rd April 2018. There are 8 places available. The website will be updated with all the information about the application process and the role description etc.
In the meantime why not check out the Mountains and Me blog written by Gill, one of our 2016 Lomond trainees or get in touch to find out about volunteering opportunities that will give you a taste for what the course is about.
