The Junior Rangers Award programme is a national award scheme for young people aged 11-18. It aims to engage and equip young people with the skills involved in working in countryside management as a ranger. We are interested in providing this award as an opportunity for young people. We are keen to establish if there is sufficient interest in us running this programme, to get a better understanding of preferred days for running it and what value people would put on it. The survey consists of only a few questions but your feedback could be vital.
The programme would involve taking part in a variety of different sessions over a year, around one day per month. Activities will include:
- conservation tasks
- learning scientific survey skills
- first aid
- working with the public
Our programme would be delivered by a Green Team staff member working alongside countryside rangers on a variety of different sites.
Participants will be able to work towards their John Muir Award and Duke of Edinburgh award as part of this opportunity.
