Apprenticeship with Pembrokeshire National Park for two new trainees

Apprenticeship with Pembrokeshire National Park for two new trainees

TWO trainees will benefit from a hands-on Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority apprenticeship scheme that has already helped 13 people into employment.

The Skills in Action scheme, financed by the Heritage Lottery Fund’s Skills for the Future grant programme, has already seen 15 trainees learn new skills through work-based experience with the park authority’s Warden and Ranger teams.

Skills in Action Project Co-ordinator for the park authority, Tom Iggleden, said: “We are delighted to have been able to extend the project so that two more people can benefit from this unique training programme and improve their career prospects.

“80% of our previous trainees are still working in the countryside sector, having gained employment with a range of organisations and businesses such as the National Park Authority, National Trust, Slebech Park Estate and Retreats Group.”

The main duties of the placement will include practical hands-on work-based experience in conservation and estate management, including managing the Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail.
