As part of our commitment to nurturing the workforce of the future, the Broads Authority runs an annual apprenticeship scheme in partnership with Easton and Otley College which aims to train young people in practical environment and conservation skills.
Our apprentices will work towards achieving a Level 2 qualification in Environmental Conservation, delivered almost entirely in the workplace.
Applications for 2019 Environmental Conservation Apprentices are now open, closing on 31 July 2019.
Please visit the Easton and Otley College website for more information and to apply for the three Environmental Conservation Apprenticeships.
New for 2019 are two Heritage Skills Apprentices that will join the Water, Mills and Marshes team (in conjunction with City College Norwich) assisting in the delivery of heritage projects within the Broads National Park.
One of the apprenticeships is a Level 2 Apprenticeship in Bricklaying and the other is a Level 3 Apprenticeship in Advanced Carpentry & Joinery. Both will focus on learning traditional techniques and helping to restore iconic buildings in the Broads National Park.
Applications are now open online for both apprenticeships, closing on 21 July 2019.
