Whistle and learn while you work
Game and Wildlife modern apprentice Callum Low from Arbroath is one of many young Scots choosing a vocational route into work.
The recent winner of Lantra Scotland’s Land-based Learner of the Year Award has championed Scotland’s Modern Apprenticeship Scheme which offers new and existing employees the opportunity to gain skills and qualifications in the workplace, without the need for full-time study.
Callum has taken full advantage of the scheme, which has helped him excel as an apprentice gamekeeper at Invermark Estate, the 55,000 acre sporting estate in the heart of Angus, owned by Lord Dalhousie.
He is currently undertaking his Modern Apprenticeship Level 2 in gamekeeping.
Callum has developed into one of Invermark Estate star apprentices and was recently rewarded for his efforts by winning the top accolade at the Lantra Awards as well as the Game and Wildlife Learner of the Year and Modern Apprentice of the Year awards.
Callum said: “It was great to be recognised for my efforts and win these awards.
“The Modern Apprenticeship Scheme is a great way to start your career.
