Subject Information

Bridgwater & Taunton College is ideally situated for the student wanting to study Countryside Management. Somerset has some of the finest wildlife habitats in the country ranging from the coastal areas along the Severn Estuary, to the wetland areas of the Somerset Levels and Moors, to the high level areas of the Quantock and Mendip Hills, and Exmoor.

As the country becomes increasingly aware of the importance of the environment to the economy, tourism and local communities so the demand for highly-qualified and experienced people who understand the complex and varied needs of the environment becomes ever greater. The range of skill-sets is wide, from warden, ranger, gamekeeper, guide to specialist scientist and eco-tourism.

Higher education courses are on offer to suit both people looking for a career change into Countryside Management or for those just starting their career in this field.
