A collection of workshops designed to work as both a complete programme and as stand-alone sessions, each workshop will help trainees progress with their bat licence training as part of wider working. Workshops are also suitable for individuals who are not licence trainees but still interested in developing their knowledge of British bats. As with our face-to-face training we will limit numbers to ensure that all attendees are able to get the most out of their workshops. The five workshops are: 'British Bat Ecology and Conservation', 'Bats and the Law', 'Bat ID', 'Roosts and Signs', and 'Training for a Licence'. We're happy to say that at least 20% of our profit from these workshops will be donated to support the work of the Bat Conservation Trust.

Tutors: Emilie Wadsworth and Natalie Todman
Level: Suitable for beginners
*Limited places available*

Dates: Wednesday mornings starting 9th June until 23rd June

Please note – this configuration of workshops will differ slightly in ‘layout’ but will have exactly the same content as the five two-hour workshop programme.

Who Should Attend?

This programme of workshops is aimed at ecology students or graduates, ecological consultants, and bat group members working towards their bat licence or training to be a bat carer. It would also be beneficial to those who review or assess bat surveys. An electronic certificate of attendance for each workshop will be sent to all participants, this can be used as supporting evidence for a licence application in addition to other handling experience gained through the usual licence training procedure, or as evidence of undertaking CPD as part of professional institute membership.
