Rural Skills [SCQF Level 4&5] Support Handbook: Trees, Timber & Forestry

Created by OWL Scotland | Published 12.11.12

This handbook is a guide for those interested in delivering these courses with a focus on forestry and timber rather than horticulture/agriculture.  It is particularly targeted to those centres south of the Highlands and Islands, where there has been dedicated support, funded by Highlands and Islands Enterprise.  The handbook is not comprehensive, but aims to provide helpful, practical ideas, good practice, advice and information.  It provides one case study, but would benefit from additional examples – perhaps you can help?
