Slide background


With a setting based in the Cheshire countryside, our college provides the perfect natural habitat for our students to gain the necessary training and practical experience required for launching their career in this expanding sector.

Students will learn and develop a wide range of technical skills, using specialist tools and equipment to gain valuable experience. These skills will give you a broad understanding of rural issues and give you the opportunity to benefit from real life working environments and forge a rewarding career in rural management.

So whether its conservation and wildlife management, game management, fish management or forestry and arboriculture, our carefully developed courses will suit students who want to combine academic studies with a practical application.

Our 300 hectare estate provides extensive opportunity for real hands on experience combined with in-depth technical study and development.

The College’s reputation as the leading provider of countryside management courses, means that not only are our students highly employable, but a significant number of national organisations use us for their training needs. Our highly skilled lecturers and tutors all have industry related experience and bring their vast knowledge to the classroom.

We were the first college to introduce a Conservation Plan for the estate and we are now in second phase of an Environmental Stewardship Agreement. We are situated near many national conservation areas and have strong links with Cheshire West and Chester and Cheshire East Council’s Countryside Services, Wirral Ranger Services, local wildlife trusts, The Forestry Commission and local fisheries.

We have developed long-term partnerships with The National Trust who have placed all of their academy trainees with us over recent years.

If you are considering a career in environmental conservation, countryside management, or fisheries and game management then Reaseheath College will give you an essential head start.
