Like Comment

Who is this for? Conservation professionals, early career starters and career-switchers. So far, we have trained over 800 conservationists from more than 60 countries, working for organisations such as the Worldwide Fund for Nature, the Wildlife Conservation Society and the Wildlife Trusts. You can see all of our graduates here.

When is it? 11th November to 16th December 2020 (6 weeks, 3 hours learning/week).

What will I learn? You will learn the skills to manage conservation projects of any type or size, by:

  • Applying a set of practical and ethical principles to guide your project
  • Assigning roles to clarify team structure and decision-making, and improve internal communication and coordination
  • Splitting projects into clear phases, to manage a project from start to finish
  • Using control processes to monitor the progress of your work and adapt to new information and changing conditions
  • Establishing administrative processes to help conduct effective internal meetings and develop high-quality project documents
  • Standardising reporting to record, evaluate and share the impact of your work, both internally and externally.

Find out more about what you'll learn by clicking on the manual below:

What will my learning experience be like? You will learn through:

  • Pre-recorded videos sent out each week for you to learn from in your own time
  • Live expert-lead sessions every Monday. 2 live session times available (9.00am or 6.00pm GMT) to fit your schedule
  • If you miss a live session you can still watch it in your own time later on
  • A multiple-choice exam to help you focus your learning efforts and assess your own ability. On passing the exam you will get a certificate to show others (e.g. managers or potential employers) that you have attained this skill.

How much does it cost? The cost is £180/person but there are discount options available. More information is available here.
