If you are fascinated by conservation and the environment, ecology and estate management then our courses will kick start your career in these sectors.
Our courses introduce you to a range of Countryside Management methods, from soil analysis, machinery use and maintenance to the practical and theoretical elements of livestock management. With courses available from Levels 1 - 3, you’ll have the opportunity to progress and expand your knowledge into farm management and diversification.
Here at Moulton you will have access to The Wilson Countryside Management Centre - a purpose built facility which will support your learning. As a Countryside Management student you will have access to specialist workshops for estate maintenance. You will learn on over 440 hectares of our farmed estate, in fully equipped workshops with a range of machinery. By learning the theory alongside practical outdoor learning, you will gain the experience needed to enter your chosen industry.
We pride ourselves on our industry links with a number of local estates and organisations, providing you will access to different types of habitat management projects, and potential employment opportunities. At Moulton you will have the opportunity to complete commercial experience on the estate, working towards the college’s agri-environmental schemes and enterprises. You’ll also get involved in additional offsite work experience as part of your chosen industry placement.
