Ambios Ltd was established in 2001 to provide nature conservation training in UK and EU via traineeships and volunteering opportunities. Our Mission is to ‘provide inspirational education, practical action, science and technology training and volunteering opportunities in nature conservation in the UK and abroad.’ We help people achieve their goals for nature, science, education and employment.
We currently have around 50 residential learners each year on long term (12weeks+) vocational courses with an additional 20 on short duration (10 says to 2week) word based training experiences.
During nature conservation training we offer a range of practical learning opportunities that demonstrate nature conservation in action. We aim to maximise opportunities for everyone to learn about the natural world and (if they wish) gain relevant vocational qualifications and employment.
We nurture partnerships and networks to support our aims. Our range of projects target different groups including young adults, adults with learning difficulties and those from under-represented backgrounds (women, carers, ethnic minority, career changers). Trainees may have no previous qualifications or have completed a higher degree – in both cases they are seeking practical vocational qualifications that demonstrate they have the skills for the jobs to which they are making applications.
