This project will deliver a training programme to groups of 7-10 young adults per year, to develop their skills and knowledge relating to natural heritage and heritage skills. As volunteer trainees they will complete a six to ten-month programme and will be 18-30 year olds who are not in full time employment or training. Up to 30 young adults will complete the programme over the 3 years of the project.
The training programme will be developed and work experience provided by host organisations.
Sharing knowledge and training with this age group will support the sustainability of the protection of the natural heritage into the future. They will be the next generation responsible for decision making for the area and to immerse them in a comprehensive training programme will ensure the future of the Trent Valley is in good hands.
Local young adults will have become engaged with the local natural heritage of the Trent Valley corridor and have the desire, knowledge and skills to protect and conserve it into the future.
