Our apprenticeship scheme is aimed at teaching young people about rivers and their importance to people and wildlife.
An apprenticeship at Eden Rivers Trust provides real opportunities to gather a range of skills, knowledge and qualifications whilst working with a team of people who are passionate about rivers and the work they do.
From practical catchment management to office admin skills, the emphasis is on developing on-the-job experience; building skills for life as well as gaining a Level 2 (Intermediate) Apprenticeship in Environmental Conservation from Newton Rigg college.
Don't just take our word for it - this is what the current crop of apprentices think about the scheme:
“It’s not just straight into work, there was a lot of training as well. Being with people similar to me, it didn’t seem like a massive jump into the workplace and was a good transition” - Joe Foster.
Andy Bates adds:
“I’m walking away with not just the memories and good times, but with something on paper; a qualification that can show a future employer what I can do.”
