Our employer-endorsed training team is able to share over 20 years of experience with our trainees by providing traineeships, volunteering opportunities and practical education in nature conservation. Breaking into a career in nature often requires practical skills and lived experiences – yet gaining these can be very difficult.
Our residential, real world, experiential traineeships provide practical skills alongside theoretical learning. We’re able to do this as a learning community within our working farm in the beautiful River Dart Valley, South Devon.
We actively work to reprioritise the value of nature, encouraging an abundance of wildlife habitats and restoring ecosystems.
“What Ambios does is completely unique. You can find conservation training anywhere, but I don’t think there’s another place that offers this level of practical tuition and immersive learning with such a current, sector-leading approach.”
“The Ambios approach to project partnerships is always welcoming, open and supportive and looking for solutions to help students learn skills and get jobs in the nature conservation sector. Their training is always top quality and relevant. We’ve worked together on many projects for more than 10 years and every time it feels like working with a wonderful family of friends."
"I was hugely impressed by the level of knowledge, experience and expertise of the staff, who are all actively involved in various aspects of ecology and countryside management, and even more by their willingness to share it and their support helping the trainees nurture their interests, whether academic, practical or creative."
“In my previous role as Consultancy Manager at Worcestershire Wildlife Consultancy I worked with the Ambios/Hereford Wildlife Trust team to provide work-place training for new entrants to ecological consultancy. It was great that Ambios took the lead in providing the vocational qualifications structure which wrapped around our real-world training. I commend Ambios for their focus on providing quality training for the next generation of wildlife professional.”
“The course at Ambios proved I could achieve the career I’d longed for - it provided the skills I needed to access jobs and confirmed I loved the reality of conservation work too.”
"Ambios are a grounded team that know what they're doing. Would highly recommend to anybody who's serious about wildlife and nature but is not quite sure where they fit in the sector."
