LEMUR+ Wildlife.Technology.Skills

lemurplusThe LEMUR+ project is now closed for applications and is in its final stages.  It was an exciting 3 year project (2014-2017), supported by Skills for the Future at the Heritage Lottery Fund, that combined real work experience of nature conservation organisations with training that included the use of technology.  Certification for each participant was part of a project that prepared and propelled trainees towards employment in the nature conservation / biodiversity management sector or prepared them with transferable skills to work in any job (taking with them an environmental awareness).

The Lemur+ Offering

Over 100 LEMURs have gone through our programme so far, 85%+ going on to jobs within the nature conservation sector.  The project design comes from a successful history dating back more than 20 years.

The LEMUR+ project provided:

4 month and 9 month training bursaries (which paid a living allowance) + external training grant + intensive local training all supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and hosted at organisations such as The Marine Biological Association, Plymouth, Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust, Torquay, Herefordshire Wildlife Trust in Hereford and South East Wales Biodiversity Records Centre in Cardiff and others.
