Courses on request

We are happy to deliver any of our courses as an in-house option where suitable. If you have 15 or more people attending and have a suitable training venue, it is likely to be more cost-effective and it means we can tailor the course specifically to your needs.

We are also happy to discuss developing and delivering bespoke training for your company’s needs. In 2012 we delivered bespoke training courses for the Canal and River Trust and London Underground staff.

Bats and Bridges: An Awareness Course

This one day course seeks to raise awareness of bats amongst individuals responsible for the maintenance and management of bridges. This course has been designed to ensure that participants are aware of their responsibilities with regards to bats and are also able to recognise the basic signs of potential roosts within bridge structures.

Designing Buildings for Bats and Biodiversity

The move towards airtight buildings has meant that many of the traditional spaces used by wildlife, such as birds and bats, are no longer provided for in new buildings. This one day course explores many of the considerations, principles and techniques available to design and build biodiversity-friendly buildings.

Audience: Local authority planners
