Land-based Workplace Skills Award

SCQF Level

The Land-based Workplace Skills Award programme provides a great introduction to land-based industries for young people. It offers an opportunity to develop relevant skills and knowledge of the agriculture or forestry industries while still at school by undertaking an accredited work placement, combined with relevant SQA unit qualifications. This work-based learning provides a preparation for apprenticeships, employment or further study in farming and related sectors. The Award programme is available at SCQF Level 4, 5 and 6.

The course runs from June through to April and includes:

  • Extended work experience (DG Employability Award)
  • Work based Core Skills in Numeracy, Communication and ICT
  • SVQ units in Forestry or Agriculture
