Community and Volunteering
We are providing young conservationists with new skills and training. Through the delivery of a training programme to groups of young adults each year, we are developing their skills and knowledge relating to natural heritage and heritage skills. As volunteer trainees, participants complete a set programme across a number of months. Targeted at young people, particularly those outside of full-time employment and training, the opportunity includes work experience with organisations within our partnership and diverse skills training through supporting the set-up and delivery of our various projects.
Sharing knowledge and training with this age group will support the sustainability of the protection of the natural heritage into the future. Our trainees represent the next generation responsible for decision making for the area and to immerse them in a comprehensive training programme will ensure the future of the Trent Valley is in good hands.
Local young adults will have become engaged with the local natural heritage of the Trent Valley corridor and have the desire, knowledge and skills to protect and conserve it into the future.
