The aim of our Intermediate Apprenticeship in Environmental Conservation is to give you an opportunity to gain confidence, learn, develop and practise the skills required for employment and/or career progression in the industry. You will cover: earth sciences such as ecology and plant science, research and survey skills, practical estate management, the management of a wide range of habitats found across the United Kingdom, interpretation and environmental education and environmental policies.
