Field Studies Council free tree training courses campaign 2022:
1. Provides the opportunity for people registering to attend up to three free tree training courses in their local area or online.
2. Bases allocation of tree training on the availability of places. There are spaces of up to ~20 people per course per location (this will vary depending on each venue requirement), plus ~95 per online course.
3. Bases allocation of places on the training on the extent to which recipients match the Field Studies Council’s target beneficiary audiences based on aims of charitable funding obtained to deliver this campaign. The prioritised audiences are people in one or more of the following groups:
3.1 Aged 18+ or intermediaries to people aged 18+, such as group leaders
3.2 Living in Bexhill-on-Sea, Brighton & Hove, Great Yarmouth, Hull, Portsmouth, Ramsgate and Stockton-on-Tees and their surrounding urban areas.
3.3 Black and brown ethnicity
3.4 Lower level of current tree knowledge and related roles
3.5 Higher interest in volunteering or working in the green economy
4. Will notify people throughout 2022 if they have been allocated a place. Successful registrations will be sent a booking page which they must complete within 7 days or their place will be reallocated. People not allocated a place will be sent details of other training opportunities within the Field Studies Council
5. Will send people emails with ideas for engaging with trees and volunteer and career ideas to protect trees and the wider natural environment.
6. Collects information to help us and our funders know who we’re reaching.
