European Protected Species Training

The training is specifically targeted towards woodland owners, agents and contractors. The aim would be for participants to be able to identify likely habitats for the key species. Also undertake work to ensure compliance with good practice, therefore avoiding the need for any EPS licences.

The training will involve presentations in the morning session, to remind attendees of the basics of legislation and habitat requirements of the individual species. The afternoon session will be based outdoors and will be an interactive session.

Refreshments and lunch will be provided.

This is a full one day course the agenda will be emailed to participants before the event.

A Training Resource for Traditional Timber Building


Woodnet have completed a partnership project with architects, carpenters and woodwork trainers to support carpentry vocational skills training.

Supported by the Leonardo Lifelong Learning Programme Woodnet participants visited several European countries to discover the differences, and many similarities in timber construction and wood decoration.

The background to this research is available at  and this web portal also provides a link to a 3D models exploring many of the structures, ranging from a barn in Kent to a Latvian windmill, a Romanian church and a French farmhouse.
