Youth Celebration

Last Friday was our first Workin' Wood awards ceremony.  A great way to end the week!  

Workin' Wood is our new youth employability project to support young people to build up their experience, confidence and skills for work.  We have an amazing team of young people who have been involved in a lot of training over the last month.  They all deserve to be celebrated for their hard work and enthusiasm.  

Euan started with us as a yard assistant in January.  He spent most of his first week doing his lift truck training at New Start Highland and successfully passed.  Angus does a work placement with us two mornings a week.  He's passed his lift truck training too and has also completed 'Know your Wood' training.  Lindsey only started as our administrative assistant two weeks ago and has completed her induction training.  She's learned a variety of topics from website maintenance to burning briquettes!  Finally Callum completed his induction training for his new placement and Ewan gained his Lantra Award in Chainsaw Maintenance and Crosscutting.  Well done everyone!
