With an original focus for the project on Apprenticeships and training, as the project commenced, Government changed the focus of their own skills training and apprenticeship programmes.
Therefore, the focus of a new training programme, became more tailored to help people into the job market thanks to the work of the professionals of the Romney Resource Centre over 90 students attended a variety of courses, improving their skills levels and confidence.
The project gave participants the opportunity to gain qualifications in Chainsaw skills, try the ‘Introductory to working on the railway’ course and undertake short courses to support their employment opportunities.
Combined with this was a new programme for Traineeships as a result of the restructure of our training projects four young people were supported into employment through new traineeships. These roles were based within Scheme Partner organisations and offered them the opportunity to gain training and skills in the conservation and public engagement sectors. Three of the four trainees have gained full time employment as a result.
The Training and Skills Programme contribute to the Reclaim project theme.
There are no opportunities for volunteering with this project.

It is planned to create a number of short films about Romney Marsh during the life of the scheme and this will include recording the progress of the projects. Go to the film footage page to get details of the films we have produced so far.
