Galloway Rural Skills

Lead Partner:
Galloway Glens Scheme

An ambitious scheme aiming to:

  • * Create and implement an ‘Employability Award in Rural Skills’ for S5 and S6 students of Dalry, Castle Douglas, Dalbeattie and Kirkcudbright High Schools. These will provide experience and work-based learning to create a pathway into apprenticeships and employment.
  • * Create and implement a new Modern Apprenticeship pilot programme in order to train 4 young people from the area in Rural Skills. These will equip them with the skills that they need to successfully enter the local skilled workplace.
  • * Create opportunities for Modern or Graduate Apprenticeships within larger local employers who currently don’t have any apprentice positions.

Status: Match funding being sought
