Wildlife Skills - Training across The Trusts

The Wildlife Skills training programme is an exciting and inspiring project that is funded through The Heritage Lottery Fund.

The project brings together the Dorset, Devon, Somerset and Wiltshire Wildlife Trusts in a joint programme.   Each Trust will host up to 4 trainees per year for the duration of the 3 year funded project.

The project is part of a wider programme that has been set up through the Heritage Lottery Fund to provide individuals across the Country with the skills to make a positive contribution to the heritage sector and to confidently seek employment in the sector. The wider benefits to conservation include increased capacity and the long term strengthening of the conservation work force. 

The 2016/17 teams

Over the course of the 3 year project, a total of 46 training placements will be offered by the South West Wildlife Trusts in partnership with Devon, Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire Wildlife Trusts.
Training will commence from July 2016 and will focus on three areas-
Education, Community Engagement and Practical Conservation. This will be reinforced by complimentary training in transferable skills to enhance employability within the natural heritage sector.
Each of the four Trusts will manage and deliver training for their trainees, with centralised core training arranged on a quarterly basis. 
Trusts will have the following traineeships vacancies available this year: (click on the County to go to their respective vacancy pages)
