Environmental Conservation is at the heart of The Mountains and The People project and therefore we are excited to be able to offer a wide range of paid, 6 month training opportunities at both our Balloch and Aboyne training centres.
Delivered through our lead partner, the Cairngorms Outdoor Access Trust, 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.
We are currently recruiting our 2017 trainee intake, so if you would like to learn the skills to work in some of our countries most dramatic and rewarding locations then visit our jobs page here.
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.
