Rural Skills & Vocational Training

Forestry Commission Research

The curriculum for excellence offers many learning and teaching opportunities for vocational learning and local business engagement with schools to enhance the learning experience for the pupils involved.

Please see this summary of Vocational Case Studies that explore how through School Partnerships these have been successfully developed and offer best practice examples of Rural Skills.

The Scottish Forestry Commission commissioned a survey of schools and colleges who run the Skill for work Rural Skills course and/or the Scottish Progression Award (SPA) in Rural Skills to ascertain take up and support received for the course. Please find attached the results of the survey.
