This 12-week immersive course is suitable for anyone with an interest in nature. Whatever field of work you are in this course will be of benefit. Each industry/sector/ job has a role to play in knowing about and making informed decisions with regards to our natural world.
Our experience suggests that graduates looking for crucial experience, career changers who are looking for a way into working in the nature conservation sector or those who are inspired by the natural world and want to broaden their horizons really benefit from this course.
Whether you are aiming to be the next Director of a wildlife NGO or the Environment Minister; a teacher, support worker, countryside ranger; researcher; inspired artist; tree surgeon, biologist, consultant or historic site manager this experience will set you on your way.
Trainees are based at Lower Sharpham Farm in the picturesque Dart River Valley, South Devon, where they will live and work with a team of fellow trainees as well as working with a range of conservation organisations from our extensive network. The course can count toward university credits for students. If you’re part of European university we can talk more about this at interview.
