Contribute to support quality local journalism
Students from Banffshire considering a career in a renewable energy related subject are being invited to apply for financial support with costs associated with their studies.
The support scheme run by Falck Renewables, owners of Boyndie Wind Farm near Banff, in areas around their 10 wind farms in Scotland, helps students of renewable energy related subjects with some of the expenses they incur while studying, such as travel costs, equipment, software or broadband.
Local businesses considering retraining staff in a renewable energy related area to help plan for the future after lockdown are also being invited to apply.
Now in its third year, the scheme has so far provided funding for students from across Scotland.
Managing director of Falck Renewables Richard Dibley said: “One of our main aims at Falck Renewables is to be a good neighbour in the areas in which we have our wind farms.
“Now more than ever, the more help we can give young people to help them into secure employment the better and we hope that by offering some financial support for things such as travel expenses, equipment or software more people might be encouraged to consider studying for a qualification in a subject related to renewable energy.
"As businesses look at how they move forward after the lockdown, financial support for upskilling could be even more useful.”
