This project created the Murton Centre for Rural Skills to provide rural skills training opportunities and a network to enhance the skills base of the rural workforce locally. This provides courses that are accessible to everyone, and created an all weather educational space that became a centre for Rural Skills Training and became the hub from which to develop a vital network of trainers, local people, businesses and other interested parties involved in the rural economy and which depend on rural skills. A development officer also develops and builds connections to create the Angus Rural Skills Network, with an estate worker to support the training delivery and the network.
– 16 local small and micro businesses being engaged in delivering the events programme.
– Many events being held including 40 learning courses, 25 engagement days and 12 full moon events attended by over 2000 people.
– In addition, over 100 young people were introduced to traditional skills through the educational programme.
