KMBRC has strong links with all of the universities in Kent and has provided visiting lecturers to talk on a range of subjects related to biological recording, ecology and conservation. We have had the opportunity to sit on the syllabus development panel for the Conservation and Ecology degrees and HNDs at Hadlow College and have delivered conferences and high level, peer reviewed research in association with Canterbury Christchurch University, The University of Kent at Canterbury and the University of Greenwich and University College, London.
We are very excited about a new venture that we are currently working on in association with the Department of Biosciences at the University of Kent. The aim is to match recent graduates with work experience and project opportunities in the conservation and ecology sector. The sector is renowned for being highly competitive and having quality voluntary experience to put on your CV can make a huge difference when applying for jobs, not to mention providing valuable networking opportunities to help with getting your foot in the door. It is with this in mind that KMBRC will be working with a number of other organisations to bring together high calibre students with suitable opportunities. If successful we will then roll out the scheme to all graduates wanting to gain experience in the sector.
If you are an organisation who could offer a rewarding work experience placement or project opportunity for a recent graduate please do let us know!
