The Community Partnership helps identify and implement projects that will have a benefit to all communities in the National Park. This includes a new Skills Partnership for the Park which has developed from the Community Partnership’s flagship Apprenticeship Support Scheme. Funding for the Skills Partnership was secured from LEADER Forth Valley & Lomond in January 2013, to develop and deliver a range of skills related pilot projects until December 2014. In July 2014 one of two project officers employed gained promotion within the organisation creating this vacancy.
The Community Partnership is now seeking to engage a suitably qualified and experienced consultant to assist with the delivery of the final stages of the pilot phase of this project.
