Our Apprentice bursary programme provides much needed funding to support new skills in the Countryside management and Forestry sectors

These posts are important to ensure the skills needed to create and manage our precious woodlands and other habitats are passed to the next generation.

Employed through the National Park Authority and its partners, many graduates have gone on to roles within the South Downs, such as the Reserve Manager at Kingley Vale National Nature Reserve.
