Let’s Get Employed in Agriculture

Tracey McEwan, Services Coordinator, in partnership with Developing Young Workforce Dumfries and Galloway and Let’s Get Sporty, has developed a new 6 week programme designed for 16 – 24 year olds who are interested in becoming involved in the Agricultural industry.

The programme has a formal application process where applicants are required to send in an application form and then an interview will be held.

Successful applicants will be placed on a farm for 6 weeks on a voluntary basis and are mentored by their placement provider and supported by Tracey.

During the placement, students will have opportunities to undertake training to help enhance their skills and knowledge.

The LGEIA programme is the first step in the educational pathway which Tarff Services offers. Following on from this is the Pre-Apprenticeship Programme.
