Hobby and Craft, including Photography, Longer Training Courses

  

Not really professional qualifications; this section covers craft courses which can be anything using traditional skills e.g. hurdle making, felting or basketweaving.  Although some of these may not be necessary to your ultimate work related goals they are complementary to an all-round countryside knowledge and are vital in keeping alive ancient skills and traditions; and they all make for an enjoyable, informative experience.

This section includes photography.
