Field Studies Council tree training courses campaign 2023-2025:

  1. Provides the opportunity for people living in Bradford/Glasgow to attend up to three in-person training courses and one online per year.
  2. Bases allocation of tree training on the availability of places. There are spaces for up to ~20 adults on each in-person course (this may vary depending on venue), and ~30 places per online course.
  3. Bases allocation of places on the extent to which registrants 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: 
    1. Living in Glasgow or Bradford city as determined with project partners and postcodes.
    2. Those aged 18-30
    3. Those with little or no knowledge of how to engage with trees
    4. Those who have or intend to plant trees in their garden or community spaces
    5. Those of black and brown ethnicity 
  4. Will notify people through 2023 and up to 2025 if they have been allocated a place. Successful registrants will be booked on to course that they registered for – it is the applicants responsibility to inform Field Studies Council if they can no longer attend. People not allocated a place will be sent details of other training opportunities within the Field Studies Council.
  5. Collects information to help us and our funders know who we’re reaching.
