Earth Trust - Countryside Skills

Earth Trust is an environmental learning charity set within a stunning 500ha nature reserve in South Oxfordshire. The iconic landscape of the Wittenham Clumps is our backdrop for outdoor learning where we welcome from EYFS to 16+. We offer engaging and educational visits for schools, which includes our unique Countryside Skills course.
Countryside Skills is a course accredited by Open College Network (OCN) that offers experience and qualifications to pupils from a variety of backgrounds with life skills, self-esteem and new experiences. Countryside Skills empowers young people to make positive choices for themselves through practical, hands-on outdoor activities such as coppicing, building bird boxes, working with sheep, campfire cooking and map reading.
