Investing in Elan Valley

Elan Valley provides opportunities for people to develop, build confidence and learn new skills.  This project will bring real improvements to the lives of people most in need by supporting the engagement and integration of those furthest from the job market back into education and training. This will be a series of activities over the next two to five years, providing a mix of introductory and progression opportunities to learn in woodlands. All of the work carried out during these courses will actively improve the natural environment of Elan Valley and people’s access to it.

Three-month fully accredited training courses will be delivered twice each year.  In addition, there will be two progression opportunities per year, which will be five-day, intensive training courses, offering experiences in different woodland career strands.
