With us you can gain valuable experience and make a difference in your own life and in the community. You will work outdoors alongside experienced professionals on land-based
projects around Bradford.
Our programme runs 2 days per week for 12 weeks. It is for 16-25 year olds but we welcome enquiries from people aged up to 30 years. You may be able to work towards an accreditation and will have help to support you into further training, apprenticeships or employment.
