We are delighted to announce that tickets are now on sale for our 2nd National Student Conference and Demo Day hosted by Shuttleworth College, part of the Bedford College Group, at their beautiful parkland campus. This event is being generously sponsored by City & Guilds NPTC Fund, Sorbus International and Forestry Commission England.

Following on from the success of 2017's inaugural student conference, the RFS Future Foresters Technology Day, attended by well over 250 students UK wide, this year's theme is "Addressing skills gaps in the forestry, arboriculture and countryside sectors" with particular reference to the recently published Forestry Skills Plan 2019 - 2024 (published by the Forestry Skills Forum - click here to see a copy).

In the morning conference session we will hear from four excellent speakers each of whom will give delegates the benefit of their extensive industry experience:

  • Dr Robin Jackson - Industry Manager - City & Guilds

  • Euan Brierley - Associate Forestry Consultant - WSP

  • Tom Williams - Managing Director - Maydencroft

  • Becki Gawthorpe - Biosecurity Officer - Forestry Commission

After a buffet lunch and refreshments, the afternoon session will comprise exhibitors and demonstrations by numerous high profile industry players giving delegates the opportunity to get hands-on with kit, ask lots of questions and network!

There is also a fantastic opportunity for your college or university to win £2700 worth of Haglof of Sweden measurement kit (a Haglof Vertex Laser Geo) by entering our photography competition! Send us a fantastic photo depicting "the application of skills or learning in a woodland environment" no later than Friday 06 September 2019 for a chance of winning this fabulous prize. Competition rules and an entry form can be found by visiting the RFS website - www.rfs.org.uk/events/conferences-and-seminars/future-foresters-skills-day-2019/

Bookings are welcome from individual delegates or group bookings.
