Place Academy - Natural Environment Trainee

Natural Environment Trainee

Having a passion for the Natural Environment, we will support you in gaining the necessary skills required to progress within the natural environment specialism. We have in house expertise in the following areas: Ecology, Trees, Landscape, Green Infrastructure and Biodiversity. We will allow you to spend time in each area which will allow you to develop a broad understanding and knowledge in all elements of the natural environment. You will be supported to undertake formal training in all areas of the natural environment and you will be encouraged to pick a specialism that you would like to focus on in more detail.

A bespoke training programme will be provided alongside key milestones that you will be expected to achieve.
