Three new apprentices have joined us at the Trust this September to help us with our projects, whilst working towards gaining qualifications through Craven College.
The Trust have been able to recruit the Amelia, Rob, and Ryan thanks to Heritage Lottery Funding and the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust’s Green Futures programme. The apprentices will join our existing River ConservationApprentice Michelle and Volunteer Supervisor Jonny. Together they will be involved in physical conservation projects such as fencing, tree planting, and fish passage maintenance, as well as engagement activities such as guided walks, talks, and events.
In addition to this there will also be the opportunity to take part in specialist training such as the use of chainsaws, pesticides, off road vehicles, and habitat surveying techniques. Not only will this help the apprentices get onto the career ladder in the conservation industry, it will also improve their education and personal development, helping them to learn new skills that will benefit them for life.
You can follow their journey through the blogs that will feature on this site, and via social media where they will be showcasing their work.
