Woodland Apprentices

The Hants and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust are spearheading this initiative that is providing young people with the opportunity to gain practical conservation experience and recognised qualifications through a structured apprenticeship programme. In doing so the project will also help return more of the Island's woodlands to active management.

The project is supporting 2 cohorts of 4 apprentices led by a dedicated instructor. The apprenticeships last 18 months with the first cohort starting in October 2016 and all 4 graduating and moving into jobs in related sectors in April 2018. The second cohort started in summer 2018 and are on course to graduate in Spring 2020.
