Stand out with our conservation courses


Why study wildlife conservation and project management?

Want to start a career in conservation? Stand out in this competitive sector with our conservation courses! Conservation is complex and many skills are needed to successfully manage a conservation programme. At the same time, many conservationists have never received formal training in areas such as project management.  That’s why we’ve partnered with WildTeam UK and Animal Jobs Direct to offer courses to kick-start your career.

WildTeam specialises in developing training tailored towards conservationists, to improve the way conservation projects are designed and run. Every course leads to certification.

Animal Jobs Direct Education Centre offers a wide range of wildlife conservation courses that are recognised and accredited by 5 national awarding bodies.

Both courses are compatible with the Open Standards for the Practice of Conservation, an initiative run by the Conservation Measures Partnership (CMP) which helps practitioners improve the practice of conservation, from project design, to implementation and monitoring, using best practices in management from conservation and other fields.

This is crucial in assessing the effectiveness of conservation programmes, which are focussed on tackling complex, large and urgent environmental issues and must be monitored carefully to ensure desired results.
