Very Good, fun day out aswell as helping the enviroment they supply the items required for the jobs. Friendly and give you lots of information about the jobs you are doing so you are learing something new aswell.
Brilliant way to meet new people, and learn new & valuable skills! I learnt a lot about the local environment and the local habitats whilst volunteering in this role. I loved mucking in & getting my hands dirty, all whilst learning new skills, and growing in confidence.

child education (Former Employee) – margrove park – 18 October 2015
A typical day at work for the Wildlife Trust wasn't exactly what you would call typical it included planning out route adventures through one of the wildlife reserves and activities throughout the day. With working with this team i got to learn myself about the wildlife and how to help maintain there lively hood. I was taught how to change activities to accommodate both ages and mental health in children and adults.I was showed how to prolong an activity when needed and motivate minds in certain areas. I worked well with all my co-workers and we bounced ideas of each other and decided together which would be the correct path to take when choosing our lesson plans The hardest part for me would be the long days it became more challenging towards the end of the day as the children grew more tired however keeping the children motivated and excited was easily done as a team .I thoroughly enjoyed working outdoors and with so many different people on a daily basis. building things for school and showing the children how to grow things for themselves was truly rewarding. my management team were fantastic they were supportive and understanding as well as helpful and friendly.
