TCV provides young people with the opportunity to gain:
- Practical and landbased skills needed to work in the green sector
- Training in species identification, recording and monitoring training
- Experience in team work and leadership
Young people joining our Conservation Volunteer Team gain valuable experience learning conservation skills working as part of a team of people with varying skills, backgrounds and abilities. As part of the conservation team, young people work on a variety of sites and project tasks within the Highlands, including habitat restoration, access work, wildlife gardens and drystone walling.
We also offer structured youth learning programmes (subject to funding), which typically last for 6 months and include training such as Chainsaw, Brushcutters and Employability in the Outdoors Award.
Young people can also become a Conservation Volunteer Leader, which involves helping to lead our volunteer group for 3-12 months. Leaders will receive MiDAS minibus training and First Aid at Work.
Anyone can attend our conservation team days. Please contact us to book a space on the minibus.
What qualifications do you offer?
Dependent on the type of volunteering you’d like to do with us, and the funding we have in place.
