The apprenticeship scheme has been launched by local charity Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust to provide ten 18-24 year olds with an opportunity to gain the skills and experience necessary to pursue a fulfilling career with the Yorkshire Dales at its heart.
Project officer Jo Boulter said: “We believe it is vital to not only provide exciting local employment opportunities for young people in the Yorkshire Dales, but also to invest in the education and personal development of the next generation of custodians for this fantastic rural landscape."
This two year programme combines hands-on work placements with a complementary level two diploma in either environmental conservation, forestry, horticulture, game keeping or butchery.

But these stories manage to keep her pathological hatred of Christmas under wraps. Nesbit was not a festive fan, a feeling that stemmed from having to write seasonal poems – including Christmas Is Coming – to make ends meet in the early days of her marriage to Hubert Bland. What’s more, prior to her fame, she was a mistress of horror, penning elegant but disturbing ghost stories.
In Edith In The Dark, Harrogate Theatre’s brand new commission from playwright Philip Meeks (Studio Theatre, Tuesday 10 December to Sunday 5 January), the author escapes her annual Christmas soiree to tell dark tales of terror in the attic, along with her loyal housekeeper and a handsome young stranger. Yet as the trio breathe life into these yarns, it becomes clear that all is not as it seems – one of the people in the attic is hiding a deadly secret.
