RSPB Sandwell Valley Nature Reserve, located around part of Forge Mill Lake in Sandwell Valley National Park, hosts the activities.

It was organized for local people aged 16-30 from The Prince’s Trust who are not in education, employment or training (NEET).

The week-long face-to-face course – which begins on Monday and continues until Friday – will allow young people to learn new skills in conservation.

People will learn about habitat management, bushcraft activities, learn mentorship and work on their confidence and communication skills.

Ida Fabrizio, the project officer who works for the RSPB and who designed the week-long course focusing on nature conservation, said: “They recruit NEET people and place them in a sector in which they want to work. .

“They (The Prince’s Trust) work with different organizations on week-long courses to give people training and help them learn new skills (and then see) if they want to work in this sector.”

A previous session took place in March and a few people involved have returned to volunteer, with 10 people also coming to a tasting session earlier this week.
