This Apprenticeship offers high quality training to meet the environmental conservation industry standards. The qualification was designed by the industry for employers and this ensures that the training you receive will equip you with the skills needed by the industry.
Currently you are assessed throughout the course via practical sessions in the workplace and the compilation of a portfolio of evidence to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding. This is likely to change to include an assessment at the end of the programme as we this course changes to a Level 2 Apprenticeship Countryside Worker.
If you have completed the Level 2 Apprenticeship, you could progress to a Level 3 Apprenticeship, then have the opportunity to work towards the Foundation Degree in Animal Management & Wildlife Conservation or Professional Certificate in Wildlife Conservation at University Centre Somerset.

I have gained a sound knowledge of so many aspects of the countryside, including native tree species, freshwater fish and flora and fauna, as well as learnt practical skills in things like hedge laying and conducting habitat surveys. I’ve also done work experience with Natural England at a local nature reserve.
