Are you passionate about conservation?
Do you want to work in conservation in the future? As part of its 50th anniversary activities, conservation charity the Snowdonia Society is looking to the future and investing in its volunteers. A new opportunity will allow volunteers to gain an accredited training certificate to demonstrate their practical conservation skills.
The new certificate is awarded for completing the Practical Conservation Skills unit (equivalent of a unit at GCSE or NVQ level 2). Jobs in the practical conservation/ outdoor sector are highly competitive and applicants are having to stand out more than ever before and this certificate will be a useful addition to your CV.
This unit is ideal for existing volunteers, and for those who are keen to begin. The unit should take around 30 hours to complete, with around 20-25 of these being out on practical conservation workdays. Minimal paperwork includes keeping a simple written record of each conservation workday. Place are limited – for more information about the Practical Conservation Skills unit or other conservation volunteering opportunities contact Mary-Kate Jones:
This new initiative is part of the Snowdonia Society’s long-running and very active practical conservation programme, supported by Snowdonia Giving, Snowdonia National Park Authority, People’s postcode Lottery, Garfield Weston Foundation and Esme Kirby Snowdonia Trust. Conservation workdays and training events are organised every week across Snowdonia.
