Get Accreditation for your Dedication in the AONB

Match flower to leaves

Would you like to further your career, enhance your CV, or just learn something new?

Look no further, the Tamar Valley AONB is now a registered AQA* Unit Award Scheme Training Centre and will be accrediting the skills volunteers demonstrate through the Helping Hands for Heritage Project.

The Unit Award scheme is a nationally recognised accreditation and it is through this that we will be offering 25 modules across a variety of subjects, including wildlife survey skills, historical research, countryside management, tree identification, data analysis and much more – there really is something for everyone.

Anyone will be able to enrol on the scheme, it’s free, and the AONB team will work with you to gain your accreditation, offering support and development as necessary.

Becki Lumbis, Education & Community Resource Officer for the Tamar Valley AONB, says; “This is a fantastic initiative for the Tamar Valley AONB. We are all really excited to be able to work with individuals who want to get involved with our work in conserving and enhancing our landscape, whilst gaining accreditation at the same time.”

Becki continues, “In this current climate, that little bit extra on your CV goes a long way. This scheme is nationally recognised as a way of recording vocational achievement in all areas of work and activity”.

Workshops will involve both practical tasks and theory, mainly through discussion, and all of which will be supporting the work of the Tamar Valley AONB. The skills learned and tasks achieved through the training will also be helping us to deliver more.

If you would like further information, or would like to sign up for the training, please contact Becki Lumbis, 01822 835030,
