As part of our commitment to nurturing the workforce of the future, the Broads Authority runs an annual apprenticeship scheme in partnership with Suffolk New College which aims to train young people in practical environment and conservation skills.
Our apprentices gain a number of new skills, from operating a chainsaw and clearing scrub to using pesticides and getting onto the water with our Construction and Maintenance Team.
Unfortunately, due to the impacts of COVID-19 our apprenticeship scheme will not be running during the 2020/21 academic year. We hope to resume the scheme from next year. Please check our website in due course for future updates.
The Norfolk and Suffolk Broads is Britain's largest protected wetland and third largest inland waterway, with the status of a national park. It's also home to some of the rarest plants and animals in the UK. The Broads Authority was set up in 1989, with responsibility for conservation, planning, recreation and waterways.
