West Coast Trades Academy

Conservation and Earthcare Year 3

Passionate about the extraordinary native flora and fauna of the West Coast? Worried about the future sustainability of our endemic biodiversity? Keen to take action and make a difference to the world we live in, both now and in the future? Conservation Earthcare Year 3 is the course for you!

This course follows on from Conservation and Earthcare Year 2. Please note students who did not take the level 2 course are still eligible to apply for the Year 3 course.

Conservation and Earthcare Year 3 provides students with the opportunity to be agents of change by leading a major year long sustainability project. At the beginning of the year students investigate local sustainability issues. The focus for 2022is protecting New Zealand’s taonga (treasured) species. Students will work collaboratively in teams. You will  take action to protect a species close to you while gaining a range of industry specific skills and qualifications in pest monitoring and pest control, bushcraft, health and safety, resource management and sustainability practices.

Throughout the course students will have the opportunity to design and lead authentic, meaningful, hands on learning experiences while working alongside industry experts.

Conservation and Earthcare Year 3 challenges students to be curious, to be innovative, to be part of the change and to be part of the future.
