Training for adults

We're never too old to learn!

Training for all the grown ups out there

We would love everyone to enjoy looking at, identifying, reporting and recording the wonderful wildlife in Derbyshire, so we’ve put together a training programme.

You don’t have to have any previous experience or expensive kit – just an interest in wildlife and a zest for knowledge.

Let us tell you more...

Where are the courses held?

The sessions are held at our Middleton HQ in a friendly relaxed atmosphere with fieldwork taking place nearby.

Who will be teaching me?

The training is at beginners level and given by either our highly qualified Trust staff or friends of the Trust, all of whom wish to share their passion. 

What do I need to bring?

Each course is a day with a mixture of indoor and outdoor activity.  Just bring your lunch and enthusiasm!

How much do they cost?

All training is £35 per person per day – book two or more separate courses at the same time and receive a 10% discount.

The Wildlife Trusts believe that people are part of nature; everything we value ultimately comes from it and everything we do impacts upon it.
