Each course explores a different subject which is relevant to employment in our sector: camera trapping, wildlife journal making, stakeholder engagement, tree i.d. & survey, environmental influencing and birds in education.
We are looking at ways to make these courses as accessible as possible with a small administration fee (if there is sufficient interest – please register at the bottom of this page).
In addition to the 6 distance learning course, the project did a lot of other things such as training for staff and students and exploring how to provide suitable recognition for learning. To explore these project outcomes and see the full Evaluation Report please follow this link.

Birds are present in our everyday lives. We can see and hear them most places we go which makes them a good anchor to nature which we know improves our wellbeing.
If you are interested in engaging people in environmental education, birds are a powerful tool and you know more about them than you think!
This course supports you as future or existing educators to explore how birds can capture people’s attention and illustrate our relationship with nature.

The project also involved a joint staff training programme (in the UK) and two intensive study programme for student (one to Hungary, one to Italy).
