The National Trust's Passport to your Future

The Passport to your Future programme is looking for people with a passion for the work the National Trust does to come and train with them in some of their breath-taking places. Trainees don’t need qualifications or work experience, they are just looking for someone with a real love for the great outdoors, who’ll be able to tell them how they’ll benefit from the programme, what it means to them and how it will help them succeed.

The trainees will be paid and will follow a structured training course, which the Trust hope will act as a stepping stone for a further career in outdoor heritage spaces.
