What will I learn?
An apprenticeship in environmental conservation will provide the essential skills for a career protecting and maintaining the environment.
Depending on the needs of the role, the programme could include cover surveying and reporting on the condition of an outdoor area; encouraging people to enjoy the environments around them; carrying out habitat management work; or monitoring a section of river prone to floods.
An apprenticeship will also help develop a professional working style, safe working practices, awareness of the work environment and communicating effectively with colleagues and customers.
Other skills will include functional skills needed in the work place (Maths, English, ICT) and specialist qualifications such as NPTC Certificate of Competence qualifications required to carry out certain tasks. These might include all terrain vehicle handling or safe use of brushcutters/strimmers.
