This project supports a number of initiatives that enable groups, teachers, individual enthusiasts and volunteers to develop their learning and skills. This includes projects led by the Partnership, and those suggested by others to meet developing needs associated with the landscape partnership themes.
Examples of activities include: support for curriculum development; training of trainers and teachers to extend their capacity to teach beyond the classroom; training around habitat and species identification; workshops for specific types of conservation work e.g. rivers, woodland; training to develop the ability of volunteers and groups to develop heritage skills such as surveys, recording, cataloguing, digitisation, oral histories or interpretation.
Training and mentoring schemes that enable groups to increase their effectiveness in delivering projects are also covered: for example, project management, fundraising, accounting, evaluation or business planning.
This project is now complete.
