Calling all Land Based Businesses in the Cairngorms National Park Area

If you run a land-based enterprise in the Cairngorms National Park area, the CNPA is looking to put together a programme of training and events for the remainder of 2011 and into 2012. The main focus will be on delivering the Deer Stalking Certificate Level 1 (DSC1) course within the Park.

Fiona Morris from the CNPA writes:
I would like to establish from you whether or not your business would be interested, in principle, in taking advantage of any places on such a course, if I were able to arrange this training within the Park boundaries say between now and the end of March 2012. Businesses would be asked to make a financial contribution, but the Land Management Training Project would take on the arrangement of the event and would provide part-funding. Given that I am just at the very early planning stages, I am not in a position at this point in time to say how much that contribution would be. The purpose of this email is to try and establish whether or not the demand exists for this particular training.

I am always happy to receive suggestions for other types of training which you feel would be beneficial to land based businesses within the Cairngorms National Park.

Please see below for a link to the Land Management Training Project webpage for more information about the grant funding available to support land based businesses to provide training to develop staff by enhancing their knowledge and skills.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Fiona Morris
Land Management Training and Support Officer
