Alongside this you will understand the broader context of wildlife work, including ecology, ethics relating to wildlife, human pressures on wildlife and practical and field work skills.

They emphasise work-based learning, and concentrate on the development of personal and professional development and employability skills including communication, teamwork, problem solving, the application of number and the use of information technology.
