Come on an RSPB training course!

Whether you're an arable farmer who wants to get the best from your agri-environment scheme, or an advisor looking to help clients to integrate conservation into their land management, we can offer you expert training at various locations around the country. Courses include a mix of theory and demonstration to show you the theory into practice, and are delivered by our expert team of agricultural advisors with the help of the host farmers. 

This year, the farming courses on offer include:

Best use of Environmental Stewardship on an arable farm

22 May and 27 June - RSPB Hope Farm, Cambridgeshire

Find out how to maximise farm wildlife conservation on farmland through Environmental Stewardship and the Campaign for the Farmed Environment: how to determine which species to focus on, putting together the right package of measures and how to manage them to get the best results for the farmer and wildlife.


Livestock farming – how commercial livestock systems can integrate the needs of farmland wildlife

20 September Great Wollaston Farm, Shropshire
27 September Rectory Farm, Buckinghamshire

Courses will be held on a dairy farm in Shropshire and a beef and sheep farm in Buckinghamshire that have integrated management to benefit a range of wildlife over many years. Find out about the latest research, how to decide what wildlife to focus on and make the best use of agri-environment schemes. This course offers a mix of indoor presentations, exercises and on-site demonstrations of effective farm management practices that help wildlife.
