Aberdeenshire Learning Festival

SLE shared a "Land-based Stand" on 13th February with NFUS, LANTRA, SRUC, Ringlink, Royal Northern Countryside Initiative (RNCI) and Aberdeenshire Council at the Exhibition Centre in Aberdeen in order to promote job opportunities across the sector to teachers from all over North East Scotland.
There were structured learning opportunities on offer for primary school, through secondary, to apprenticeships and many other courses for young people looking to expand their knowledge, qualifications and skillsets.
SLE and NFUS, through our members, provide many of the mentored placements currently offered and the aim is to increase collaboration between the participating organisations in order to help bring more youngsters into the rural, land-based sector.
Successful collaboration as exemplified by the Deeside Estates' educational partnership with Aboyne Academy are an excellent 'practical demonstration' of the way in which we can promote opportunities in the sector for youngsters.
Members who would like to offer mentored placement opportunities for local youngsters in their businesses, on either a full or part-time basis, should please contact David Fyffe, SLE North East Chairman.
