Is this course for you?
Do you want to work in the Great British countryside….or beyond?
Do you want to have a positive impact on the planet and be part of the ongoing solution to climate change, habitat loss and species extinction? If so, then this course is for you!
The range of job opportunities and employment prospects within the countryside sector is far greater than many people realise.
Studying at the Rodbaston College gives you access to a diverse and vibrant rural estate with a multitude of habitats including woodland, wetland, grassland, ponds, lakes, canal, formal gardens and farmed areas. We are also local to many country parks and areas of outstanding natural beauty such as Cannock Chase, which add an extra dimension to trips and practical sessions.
A balanced approach to practical skills and scientific understanding will put you at the forefront of the fight to improve not only local but also national and even international ecosystems, all backed up and taught by staff who have a wide breadth of experience and knowledge gained in this dynamic and interesting sector.
Taught sessions may start inside the classroom but often break out into the great outdoors and with dedicated practical sessions, skills are developed at a rapid pace to engage and enthuse.
Our links to local and national experts always makes guest lecture time informative and fun, and networking with prospective employers is always a good career move!
