Countryside Rangers in Scotland – Youth are the Future

Luke Taylor is a Ranger in Scotland. He started his career as a Ranger through a Modern Apprenticeship in 2016 which led to several opportunities, awards, and even a full time job. As he went through his apprenticeship, he began to wonder why there weren’t very many other young rangers like him…
Having come across many inspiring people who are rangers, Luke says they are often the type of person who lives to work and carry out their role above and beyond their own pay grade. A ranger's work has much unseen importance, such as such as the protection, conservation management and the interpretation of a resource, including education and awareness, plus health care, access for all, all of which provides public enjoyment of Scotland’s outdoors.
