The natural world needs more protection than ever to conserve our wildlife species and habitats.
Our wild and open spaces play a vital role within our economy, making the need for conservation professionals imperative. Our countryside management and environmental conservation courses will equip you with the essential skills needed for a career in the industry.
You will study a variety of exciting course topics that include: managing a range of UK habitats, surveying plants and wildlife, guided walks, countryside estates skills, wildlife ecology and environment, machinery operations and industry-based work experience.
You will learn the specialist knowledge required along with gaining the extensive hands-on field experience needed to manage habitats, conserve wildlife and the environment. Once you have completed a Level 2 course, you can progress to a Level 3 course or apprenticeship. After completing a Level 3 course, you will be equipped to progress to higher education, undertake an industry training course, or work in the UK or internationally within conservation.
