FSC Biodiversity Training Project Evaluation Report. Evaluation report for the FSC Biodiversity Training Project 2006-2011.
The Biodiversity Training Project was a 5-year project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund (89.9%) and the Field Studies Council (FSC) (10.1%). It was aimed at promoting, enhancing and encouraging biological recording in Shropshire and the wider West Midlands region. This was done by running a number of training events; either directly, or indirectly, by funding other local organisations to do so. Also, this support was given to a small number of new tutors to increase their confidence and skills in front of students and support their personal learning objectives. A short research paper examining the need for accreditation within the volunteer sector was also undertaken. This report presents the targets and outcomes of the FSC Biodiversity Training Project, which ran from the beginning of May 2006 to the end of March 2011.
