Ambios offers a range of residential training options that provide you with the skills and experience
needed for a career working with nature and its recovery.
Choose from a 16-week or 12-week immersive traineeship or dip your toes into the world of nature
recovery through shorter learning experiences both online through distance learning or on our wildlife-friendly farm and rewilding site on the
Sharpham Estate, South Devon.
Our longer traineeships will take you on a deep dive into nature recovery covering a rich and diverse
range of topics. Learning is put into practice through hands-on training experiences including wildlife
monitoring, practical land management, livestock handling, and community projects, providing
plenty of opportunity to develop confidence in your new skills.
If you have limited time available, you can experience nature recovery and spend between 2 and 8
weeks with us over the summer. Over this time, you can start to build your knowledge, first-hand
experience, and confidence in nature.
