LEADER-Funded Engine Exchange Programme

The Engine Exchange Programme is a European LEADER funded programme between Småland in Sweden and a partnership between Angus, Perth and Kinross and Fife Council areas in Scotland. There’s a great opportunity for at least five young people aged between 18 and 25 from rural Perthshire to take part in an inspiring, fully-funded programme – which includes a visit to Sweden.

The aims of the project include strengthening entrepreneurship and activism in the participating rural areas.


The young people - from both Sweden and Scotland – will take part in an exchange which will last for 10 days and will see participants taking part in a personal development programme, cultural activities and an appropriate work placement for approximately 5 days.


Our summer intern in 2017, Gemma Matthews was lucky to be given the opportunity to go have a place Programme, which went to Finland that year, and found it an inspiring experience.


How to Apply If you are interested in taking part, or know someone you think would be interested, please contact Rural Skills Scotland: Jacky@ruralskillsscotland.com
