Young Rural – Networking in Angus and Beyond

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for young people in Angus to get involved in a work experience project in Sweden.

Following a successful work exchange project last year, Angus Council’s LEADER Programme* is again involved in providing 18-25-year-olds a chance to gain work and life experience in rural Sweden.

Due to the late withdrawals, there are now four places available within a total of 15 places, drawn from Angus, Fife and Perth & Kinross. Recruitment is now being finalised but there is still the chance to sign up and get involved. The Sweden trip takes place from Friday 29 May to Sunday 7 June 2020.

It is a week-long development and delivery of work exchange that focuses on a young person’s development of their personal skills, as well as their knowledge and understanding of rural development, community and enterprise.

Past participants have found the project hugely rewarding, for their personal esteem and future options for their career, living and working. It’s also a great way to meet new people. It helps young people to develop soft skills and widen their cultural awareness as they gather treasured memories.

If you are keen to get involved and for more information contact Jacky Carstairs at Rural Skills Scotland via jacky@ruralskillsscotland.com
