The Diploma Course of the WLT is run in conjunction with the University of East Anglia (Norwich), and is the only course of its type, anywhere in the world, as far as we are aware. The WLT also runs a sophisticated intern programme, and both these programmes are aimed at creating first class administrators for wildlife programmes in the future. The skills developed include fundraising, understanding accounts, presentations, and organisational promotion and development. However, all students (who are expected to be graduates), have to fund their studies, and the Trust would like to be able to provide at least two bursaries a year. This project would create an endowment to fund such bursaries.
