Countryside Management & Gamekeeping
City & Guilds Level 2 Technical Certificate in Land and Wildlife
At Myerscough College keeping up to date with industry requirements is paramount. The Level 2 Land & Wildlife is a one year course designed to give you a broad understanding of the countryside industry, with a view to progressing to one of our Level 3 courses, or to start work within the industry.
The game and wildlife industry includes everything to do with the management of upland, lowland, woodland and wetland game and wildlife species, including partridge, grouse, pheasant and deer. A gamekeeper’s main tasks include hatching and rearing young birds, making sure game is kept safe from predators, and making necessary repairs to equipment, buildings and release pens.
Within countryside conservation, you could be surveying and reporting on the condition of an outdoor area, encouraging people to enjoy the environments around them, carrying out habitat management work or monitoring a section of river prone to floods.
