Tertiary education

Mike Swan and studentsThe Trust has a major new tertiary education programme. As a result of generous private sponsorship, we are able to offer students on land based courses a broad range of talks and guided field excursions to help their understanding of the Trust’s work, free of charge.

This aims to give the next generation of land managers, from gamekeepers and foresters, to farmers, conservation managers and land agents, a deeper insight into conservation of wildlife in the working countryside.

If you are either running a course or participating in one, and feel that Trust input could be helpful please contact the Tertiary Department.

Our aim will always be to tailor the sessions to the specific needs of student groups, and a wide range of topics can be covered.

The following list gives an indication of the range of titles, but is in no sense exclusive:

  • The principles of practical conservation in an historical context
  • Managing farmland habitat for biodiversity
  • The indirect effects of pesticides on farmland fauna
  • What does conservation through wise use mean?
  • How and why game management works for conservation
  • The role of predator control in conservation
  • Woodland management for game and how it affects other wildlife
  • Grouse moor management and upland wildlife
