Skills learned will include: species and habitat indentification and surveying skills habitat management, planning and evaluation pollution control and monitoring project planning interpreting legal framework documents planning and mitigation environmental management systems co-ordinating species and habitat assessments Key features include: Residential field trips in years 1 and 4 to underpin and contextualise what you learn. A range of field trips and visits to relevant local and national organisations to provide real life experience and to meet professionals in their field of work.
