Our 2020 6-month part-time woodland skills course is now full. This will be our last year running the course at Cwm Plysgog. Although this marks the end of an era it is also the beginning of a new chapter for Coppicewood College. With that in mind, we are excited to announce that we are now accepting applications for our 2021 woodland skills course. This course will be led at our new location in Pengelli Forest.
We are anticipating that the woodland skills course will go ahead as scheduled from Wed 30th Sept. Being a small group in a large outdoor space we see no problem observing the COVID requirements. So if you were considering taking this brilliant course, please respond by sending an inquiry.
We are interviewing students for Octobers (2020) course now.
If you are keen to investigate the possibility of taking a place, please contact us to arrange a visit to help you decide if the course is for you.
Especially relevant for people interested in a career in woodland working, woodland owners and any one wanting to understand how coppicing can contribute to a reduction in CO2 and assist the UK in reaching its climate targets.
A 6 month, structured comprehensive, sustainable woodland management course leading to potential employment opportunities in rural areas.
As our current lease expires in June 2022 we have been looking for an alternative woodland to operate in and we are delighted to announce that we will be taking up residence on a 25 year lease in Pengelli woods an SSSI woodland with a particular rare habitat for Dormice.
Its great news but as part of the process we are building a new workshop which will cost around £40,000. We have already found £20,000 but we need to fund raise to reach the balance so any help you can provide by donating to us we would be most grateful.This will allow us to continue to provide our unique and valuable woodland management training well into the future.
