Carbon Trainees

Throughout the Carbon Landscape

The Carbon Trainees project offers unemployed people the opportunity to learn traditional heritage and conservation management skills whilst undertaking a traineeship in Environment Conservation.

Together with volunteers, they work alongside, and gain knowledge from, a variety of experts from across the Partnership.

They carry out landscape conservation work in the scheme area by delivering the practical outcomes for all natural heritage and access projects throughout the programme.
