Wishart visits Crannog Centre ahead of move to Dalerb site
Pete Wishart, MP for Perth and North Perthshire, visited the Scottish Crannog Centre to speak with staff ahead of their move to the new site at Dalerb on the North side of Loch Tay later this year. The visit also came following the Scottish Crannog Centre’s success at this year’s Scottish Apprenticeship Awards in March, where they won ‘SME Employer of the Year – Promoting Diversity’.
Commenting, Mr Wishart said:
“I was delighted to meet with partners and apprentices at the Scottish Crannog Centre to hear about all the work that has been happening behind the scenes to get the new site ready. What was evident was that this has been a huge undertaking which has only been made possible by the dedication and enthusiasm of the whole team.
“They also recently won the award for ‘SME Employer of the Year – Promoting Diversity’ in the Scottish Apprenticeship Awards, for which I cannot think of a more deserving winner. Management there go out their way to offer opportunities to young people, particularly those facing different barriers to work. One example is their partnership with Perthshire Autism Support, who they work with extensively to offer opportunities to neurodiverse young people in a way that caters to their needs.
“It is brilliant to see so many positive things happening at the Scottish Crannog after 2021’s devastating fire. My office are now looking at ways that local and national levels of government can support the fantastic work they are doing in the year ahead and beyond.”
