Our Game Management students are gaining essential skills in running a clay pigeon shoot thanks to the support of industry leader Laporte CPC.
The clay pigeon shooting company, which supplies traps for the Olympics and Commonwealth Games, has loaned us a professional sporting clay trap for the use of our Level 2 and Level 3 Extended Diploma in Game Management students.
The 37 students are learning how to use the top-class equipment, gaining skills which they will need when they manage commercial or charity events. They are also providing the company with a review.
The clay trap is remaining with us free of charge until December, when the loan period will be reviewed. The students are also being encouraged to take advantage of social networking through the WeShoot App which is dedicated to shooting sports.
Course Manager Matt Goodall, who built the links with Laporte, said: “We were delighted at the company’s generous offer, which is allowing our students to both progress their own shooting skills and to gain experience of how to manage an event for clients. These are essential, practical skills which employers are looking for.”
The clay trap on loan to Reaseheath is a 185 PC 6C 350 PRO Sporting Trap.
This is yet another deal with external companies which is contributing to our game management students’ experience. Other companies which support our courses include:
- Massey Feeds
- Kings – Cover Crops
- Cheshire Pheasants
- Collins Nets

- Perdix Wildlife Supplies
