"The Water Environment Worker Apprenticeship has been nothing but a huge success. Considering the set back that myself and the tutors have had to deal with due to flooding and COVID 19, we all had to adapt to new methods of teaching, but with excellent guidance, effort and teaching. I love all parts of the course and all the topics covered are relevant to my job role"

“We started working with BTC as part of the trailblazer group for the Level 3 Water Environment Worker Apprenticeship. The team were very quick to adapt to the needs of the National Trust and very knowledgeable and supportive to our apprentices. We’ve been especially impressed with the support we’ve received during the covid-19 pandemic in 2020.”
- Caroline Noon, Head of Apprenticeships at National Trust
"After enrolling onto the Countryside Worker Apprenticeship in March, I certainly didn't anticipate that the practical work would have taken such back seat for a few months due to a pandemic! However, my experience through the College's adaptiveness to Online Learning has been absolutely wonderful. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of our online sessions and have been very happy with how relevant every aspect of it has been in relation to my work. I have been so impressed with the adaptability of the College in putting together such an engaging set of lessons at short notice. It has been nothing but professional from the very start. There has also been a refreshingly fun element within the teaching, with the whole approach benefitting me greatly in terms of progressing my knowledge of countryside management. The support I have had has been second to none, and I can't wait to continue my learning and develop my practical skills further in my role."
