Coastal Community Traineeships

You are here

This is a 12 month traineeship delivered in partnership with Strive Adventure and East Lothian Council.  Trainees are given a suite of practical learning and training in outdoor sports instruction, youth work, practical conservation and forest skills.  Each trainee receives the support of a mentor and also undertakes TCV Scotland’s Employability in the Outdoors Award.

I love being outdoors in the fresh air! I’m much better suited to working in a group outdoors rather than a classroom.  I’ve gained skills in hand tool use, surfing, working in a group and delivering youth work sessions.  I feel more independent and have been given more responsibility. - Coastal Communities trainee
