After completing the course you’ll be able to confidently plan and deliver effective communications activities, making you more employable, competitive and impactful as a professional conservationist.

Since launching the course in 2020, we’ve been delighted to get a 100% satisfaction rating from over 500 Comms Stars. PLUS we’ve been thrilled to see many of them land conservation jobs directly as a result of the training.

“Thanks to this course, I have just secured a dream job as Head of Communications for a UK-based conservation charity, and I have been able to perform confidently both at work and at the interview stage, drawing directly upon my learning from this course!” Kate Stephenson (Kate On Conservation), UK.
