- Are you interested in a career in environmental conservation?
- Would you like to learn all about countryside management?
- Are you interested in creating and maintaining heritage sites?
Our land-based qualifications will give you a head start whether you want to carry out conservation work and improve the environment for wildlife and people, or whether you want to create and maintain heritage sites.
You will work outdoors at Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust’s beautiful 450 hectare reserve at Idle Valley (equivalent to 600 football pitches), and Rufford Country Park with its networks of lakes, wetland, grassland and scrub, acting as an outdoor classroom for fieldwork with their Rangers and Wardens learning how to maintain the existing habitats and developing new ones.
You will have the opportunity to take part in the World Skills UK Environmental Science competition at the NEC in Birmingham, to showcase your problem solving and practical abilities against other teams from across the UK.
