FAS and Dunhill Multi-Education Centre are delighted to announce the launch of a new local training initiative based around the Recreational trails of County Waterford. This one year training programme is designed to provide trainees with the skills to enhance, maintain and manage a network of recreational trails around the County. Participants on the programme will get the opportunity to work on a number of recreational trails in development around the County. Participants will also gain a FETAC Level 5 Major Award in Specific Employment skills which will include IT & work based skills, landscaping skills and heritage, tourism and recreation content. Based in Dunhill Multi-Education Centre, the trainees will gain an overview of the Waterford Trails Strategy, investigate the heritage & tourism potential of trails and also learn how to maintain trails and construct trail furniture & signage. Furthermore, the course includes aspects of outdoor recreation & hillwalking proficiency so that trainees have a full complement of skills to apply in all areas of trail development, promotion & management. This exciting new programme is available on a full-time basis over a one year period, commencing in early July. An information evening on Thursday June 14th is planned to give potential participants and interested parties further information.
