Keith CARS – 3 training courses focusing upon traditional building skills. Each course will cater for 12 students. Students will be recruited from the following sources in order of priority:
- Keith Grammar School (pupils who are concentrating on vocational courses)
- Other surrounding secondary schools (again, pupils who are concentrating on vocational courses)
- Appropriate local unemployed people referred by Skills Development Scotland
- Local Contractors who wish to upskill
At least seven of the students each year are to use their new found skills to go onto employment, further education or training.
Elgin CARS - 2 stonemasonry apprenticeships each lasting 4 years. Specific sessions for young people 18-24 and unemployed, demonstrating conservation and other techniques, with the project apprentices sharing their skills and experience.
Skills seekers - hands on sessions on specific conservation techniques related to e.g. masonry, metalwork, external doors, windows etc - 3 per annum.
Targeted work with local education authority whereby the project skills, stories of the buildings and their events can be effectively used as part of the Curriculum for Excellence in addition to specific projects or site visits.
