This apprenticeship is based at our office in Tebay.

The Westmorland Dales is a beautiful landscape within the Yorkshire Dales National Park and we are looking for individuals to gain Skills for the Future. We have four apprenticeship opportunities, ideal for enthusiastic individuals who would like to kick start a countryside career in land management or wildlife conservation.

The ‘Skills for the Future’ project is part of the Westmorland Dales Landscape Partnership Scheme – a programme grant-funded through the National Lottery Heritage Fund which aims to reveal, conserve and celebrate the hidden heritage of the area that became part of the extended National Park in 2016.

Five great reasons to apply for an apprenticeship with the Westmorland Dales Landscape Partnership:

  1. You will be part of a team, training alongside other apprentices
  2. You will obtain a nationally recognised qualification to demonstrate your learning and skills in your chosen area
  3. You will learn countryside skills from a highly skilled supervisor
  4. You will improve your job prospects and employability at the end of the placement
  5. You will be helping to safeguard a nationally important landscape

The apprenticeship provides a learning opportunity for someone seeking their first paid position within conservation. The Authority will provide a supported, tailored placement with learning and development opportunities.  You will need to demonstrate enthusiasm, willingness to learn and to work hard, and a real interest in the countryside and the National Park.

The successful candidate will undertake a Countryside Worker (Level 2) Apprenticeship.

Closing date for applications:    5pm on Thursday 11 July 2019.

It is anticipated that interviews will take place week commencing 22 July 2019.
