Leading a Waterway Event Day 1 – Accredited Training with Thames21
September 21 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
If you love your local waterways and want to make them even better, sign on for our 2-day ‘Leading a Waterway Clean Up’ training!
Thames21 are committed to enabling communities to care for their local waterway. As part of Thames21’s work to enhance the Ching Brook and River Lea, we are providing free training to local residents who are keen to learn practical skills which they can apply to be River Keepers in their own area.
Leading a Clean Up is much more than picking up litter.
This is Day 1 of the 2-day course, designed to help you build the knowledge, confidence and skills to lead safe, effective and fun waterway improvement events. You will learn to look out for what tasks a group of volunteers can do which will really make a difference.
By the end of Day 1, you will be able to plan your own event and show that you can select an appropriate site, spot hazards, ensure health and safety, organise tasks and equipment, and publicise your event.
There is no obligation to run events once you have taken this course. Many people take it simply for the learning experience. But others do go on to lead their own events with our support. Our trainees have been involved in some exciting work over the years!
You will be provided with a workbook and other materials that will support your learning.
Please contact Poppy on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information or to register for this course.
Please note places are limited and allocated on a first come, first served basis. Booking is essential.
