Apprentice Directorship – Younger person’s opportunity

Between 18 and 25? Want to enhance your skills, knowledge and employability? All this while also helping the Carron Valley and District area and its community.

Valley Renewables Group is offering a trustee-director apprenticeship place for one year to one person from the community aged between 18 and 25. Being a director offers you the opportunity to enhance your life skills over and above normal education and training that will add to what you can offer to employers or voluntary organisations.

VRG ask in return that you contribute wholeheartedly to the Board of Directors, accept the responsibilities and duties of a director and reflect the perspective of youth on the Board.

The apprenticeship appointment will be made at the November AGM. There will be a three month induction period when you will be introduced to the role, familiarise yourself with the organisation’s rules and procedures, and attend a half-day training course (Stirling based) on the duties and responsibilities of a charity trustee. After the induction period – during which you’ll attend board meetings – you will be appointed a co-opted director. You’ll be expected to attend the monthly board meetings (first Tuesday evening of each month, held locally or online.) You will also have the opportunity to join one of the sub-groups which manage and implement our activities.

If you would like to speak with a current director about the role, its benefits and opportunities please email

To be considered for this opportunity please notify the VRG secretary via stating your interest and a very brief explanation (text or a very short selfie video clip) of what you can offer and gain by being a director.
