WildSkill EU with Erasmus+

WildSkills EU

Thanks to Erasmus+ funding we’re going to be developing a series of distance learning practical wildlife identification and communication courses aimed at University students (in the first instance).  We’re going to be working with our partners Hungary, Portugal and Italy  and there will be opportunities for you to participate in the development of these courses. Uniquely, some of the  courses will involve the loan of survey equipment to enable learners to take part in any of the participating countries (UK, Hungary, Portugal, Italy).

Having the equipment will allow participants to practice their skills while joining live learning sessions spread over 6-weeks. There will also be Co-funded ‘field trips’ to the partners and we’ll be looking to recruit students (current or recent graduates) to come on these short 5-day intensive study programmes which will involve practicing presentation skills (as a trainer) and negotiation skills (as a stakeholder facilitator).

 

The courses we're planning to develop

At the moment, the courses are likely to cover effective wildlife camera trapping and bird and tree identification with ’training the trainers’ and ’negotiating stakeholder engagement’ courses to be added later.  The project is primarily aimed at university students and new graduates but anyone can register their interest (please see below) as we are keen to discover if there is wider interest in these subjects.

Previous participants in Ambios training have said:

“Brilliant course, really enjoyable, so much so that I will be investing in a camera.”
“The balance [of different learning materials] was great and I always found myself excited to learn more and engage with the content.”
