This apprenticeship would suit anyone with an interest in rivers, coasts (the sea), lakes, wetlands, canals and reservoirs and all the habitats and species that thrive in these environments.

Gain tuition and guidance from assessors with over 40 years industry experience who have a passion for learning and our water environments.
The course has four pathways which allow it to be tailored to different types of role, these include; working with volunteers, responding to flood events, heritage assets and water level management.
Progression from this apprenticeship could lead to higher level qualifications in ecology, environmental science, water management, countryside management and a host of roles with a variety of organisations such as the Environment Agency or National Trust.
