Volunteers & Training

The Sharpham Outdoors Project offers a host of opportunities to young adults about to embark on a career relating to the environment.

These opportunities include supporting the educational provision of the project by volunteering as a mentor or becoming a LEMUR trainee taking responsibility for the offer we make to schools locally and further afield or joining the estates volunteer team tackling scrub management there’s something for everyone.

We run a range training courses, for those looking to gain scientific skills to add to the CV and including qualifications through to craft activities for those with an interest in our shared heritage and in learning a new skill.

We offer both national and international training opportunities with partners across Europe via our links with Ambios and work with a host of partners across the region and even across England to train the next generation of environmental professionals.

Please see the website for current opportunities or alternatively get in touch.
