BTCV SCoTland - Get Some CreditStANd G61"Get Some Credit": An accredited outdoor learning programme for young people.BTCV Scotland believes that young people can gain a lifetime's worth of inspiration from a positive first taste of nature. This year we are launching BTCV Scotland's exciting new training 'offer' for young people: Get Some Credit. We would like to work with educational establishments and youth referral agencies to provide young people with the opportunity to carry out and lead environmental projects in their own communities whilst also gaining meaningful accreditation that will boost confidence and improve employability. We want young volunteers aged 14-25 to receive accreditation for their hard work and commitment equipping them with skills and qualifications to help them towards their next goal. Learning will be delivered during environmental tasks in an informal yet structured outdoor setting. Training includes the delivery of units from the SVQ Environmental Conservation. This covers subjects such as habitat management, fence construction, path building, working with communities plus team building and organising and leading volunteers. So it's an opportunity for volunteers to develop both their hard and soft skills with both the practical hands on activities coupled with the social side of working with people whilst developing confidence. Volunteering with BTCV Scotland can provide a positive step towards employment. "BTCV has helped me gain confidence to realise I could successfully hold down a full-time job. It's given me structure and taught me responsibility and allowed me to gain qualifications I know will help me in my future.""I'm really determined to gain my qualifications and finish something - which would be a first for me."BTCV Scotland is committed to supporting up to 150 young people each year to Get Some Credit.To find out more visit us at the Scottish Learning Festival Show SECC on stand G61Contact us on 01786479697 or visit www.btcv.org.uk/scotland for more details.BTCV is a charity registered in Scotland (SC039302) The Scottish learning Festival 2010 Show GuideADVERTORIAL FEATUREPlease visit us on Stand A35 for further information or contact:Micheil SpiersFàs, Sabhal Mòr Ostaig,+44 (0) 1471 888247An Teangue, Isle of Skye IV44 8RQ firstname.lastname@example.orgLEASACHADH SGILEAN TEAGAISG TRO MHEADHAN NA GÀIDHLIGDEVELOPING GAELIC MEDIUM TEACHING SKILLSThe "STREAP" course, which has been developedand designed by Sabhal Mor Ostaig and theUniversity of Aberdeen is of particular relevanceto teachers in both primary and secondary sectorswho wish to convert to Gaelic medium teaching.
