We have loved helping to deliver the training element of the Interpretation Plan that we wrote for the New Forest: Our Past, Our Future Landscape Partnership.
The Plan identified modern communication skills as essential to conservation bodies, particularly in a much-visited National Park in densely populated southern England.
It proposed a diverse training programme with training a suite of local trainers at its core.
We have run training on planning interpretation projects and ‘talking about the New Forest’ in informal situations. We then worked with a panel of trainee trainers to plan a series of new workshops.
David Mount, one of our longest-established and best associates joined us to run the training the trainers strand and provide extra encouragement and insights.
