Land Management Training Project

Since 2011 the Land Management Training Project has delivered bespoke training events and short rural skills courses for land based businesses within, or partly within, the Cairngorms National Park.

During 2014/15 we will be continuing to support training in key practical rural skills by reimbursing 30% of the cost of short courses in topics such as off road vehicle driving, chainsaw operation, deer stalking, habitat monitoring, pesticide use and first aid.

We will also be running a series of free courses and events open to everyone on a range of subjects of broad interest to land managers. Keep an eye on this page for updates on what’s happening throughout the year, or email [email protected] to be added to our email circulation list.

Check out the new links on the right to learn about the Routes to Rural Employment (R2RE) initiative which offers support from primary school right through to a first job in the rural sector, and the wide array of courses on offer locally through the Cairngorms Learning Partnership and the Scottish Crofting Federation. You can now learn about Invasive Non-Native Species via a new FREE online course.

Support for short courses is available NOW. Find out how to claim back 30% of your training costs via a quick and easy application process here.
