Vocational Learning in the Forestry Sector
In 2007 the Scottish Qualifications Authority introduced a range of qualifications called Skills for Work one of which was Rural Skills (Intermediate 1). This further supported the Scottish Progression Award in Rural Skills (Intermediate 2) currently under revision, becoming a National Progression Award in 2009 (April). Both qualifications can be offered in the context of Forestry. These Case Studies look at how Rural Skills have been successfully developed through School Partnerships, with best practise examples.
