Environment and Conservation Skills
Using natural environments as our classroom Enstruct offer a comprehensive range of environmental and conservation courses for schools and pupils to help further their vocational skills and social and emotional development as well as increasing their knowledge of the environmental and land based sector.
With a shortage of environmental skills from students with an urban/city upbringing, we can bring our courses to your school or we can bring your students to our facility using our minibuses. We appreciate the importance of teaching environmental skills to young people to gain vocational qualifications, which is why we want to offer the most fun and enjoyable learning experience possible.
Several of our valued client schools opt for our work to be carried out within their grounds, this option allows young people to make a real difference to their own environments and develop a huge sense of ownership. don’t worry however if your grounds are not open to this as we have several allotments and approved woodland sites for students to carry out their work and achieve as well as relish in the fact that their work provides beautiful and safe environments for the wider community
