Forestry and Arboriculture Careers Roadshow

Plumpton College, Lewes

Ditchling Road, Lewes, East Sussex, BN7 3AE

Join us for a day of interactive workshops for ages 14 – 16 to discover where a career in Forestry or Arboriculture could take you!

  • Practical, hands on workshops led by a range of professionals from across the sector. Find out about everything from tree climbing as an arborist, to forest machinery to cutting edge climate change research and conservation
  • Visit the display arena and chat to employers from the region and beyond
  • A day on campus at Plumpton College to experience student life

Feedback from last year’s roadshow:

“Our students had a very enjoyable day but furthermore had a good insight into the world of forestry and job opportunities within the sector. A really worthwhile day!”

“I think the the greatest impact on the students was realising that there are actual careers that they can aspire to that are directly linked to the Land based course.”

We are pleased to be able to offer a transport bursary of up to £100 per school towards the cost of attending the event in memory of local forester, Roger Fitter MBE.
