In order to be eligible for the Apprentice Ranger Scheme you must:
be able to work full time for 12 or 24 months
have an interest in pursuing a career in countryside management
use the post as a first step into a career
not have achieved a degree qualification
We do not use age as criteria for selecting apprentices. Any application will be processed through the selection procedure in the same way. Any person will be supported in the same way.
Training subsidies for over 25 year olds
We receive age related external funding. In order to take on apprentices over 25 years of age other funding streams will need to be established.
If you have other qualifications in an environmental or countryside management subject, we will consider your application on an individual basis. We need to make sure that you will not be duplicating training already carried out in your previous qualification and that you will be committed to achieving your Diploma.
