Apprenticeships and Internships

Details of apprenticeships and internships available within the countryside, conservation, ecology, environmental education, wildlife and animal management sectors.


What's the difference between an apprenticeship and a volunteer placement? CJS classifies a voluntary placement as one which is totally unpaid or has only out of pocket expenses. Whereas an apprenticeship has some remuneration in addition to a significant level of training leading to a recognised qualification. Occasionally there are a few unpaid internships.

Voluntary OpportunitiesUnpaid or expenses only posts, available on full, part time and odd day basis
