Training and Development

Training For All

People are at the heart of the work we do and training and development empower individuals to create real change in the work they do and the decisions they make. With partners, we identify skills and knowledge gaps in the woodland sector and develop bespoke courses to up-skill professionals. We use innovative and flexible training tools to develop content and delivery methods that are appropriate to the audience and will make a real impact.

Canopy Learning allows individuals and organisations to engage with the latest high-quality online training for the woodland sector.
