The importance of sustainable and resilient soil management has surged in recent years. Soils, and their delivery of critical goods and services, are fundamental assets for the health, sustainability, and resilience of the terrestrial environment, and its ecosystems, as well as the longevity and productivity of society. Recently, there has been widespread recognition from researchers, industry, and policy arenas of the burgeoning pressures faced by soils, and the urgency needed to deploy robust land management strategies to address these.

Co-designed by the UK industry, the Soil Scientist Apprenticeship will equip and upskill organizations with the knowledge, understanding, tools, practices, and resources to achieve optimal soil management. It will deepen your knowledge of soils across diverse land-use contexts, delve into cutting-edge technologies for effective decision-making, showcase best practices in analyzing soils on and off-site, and help you build the personal competencies you need as a soil scientist.

Our Soil Scientist Apprenticeship meets the requirements of the Level 7 Soil Scientist Apprenticeship Standard, enabling graduates to perform effectively as professional soil scientists in a competitive ad fast-changing environment.
On completion of the program, you will acquire a Soil Scientist Apprenticeship and a Master’s Degree in Soil Science. You will also attain Technical Membership of the British Society of Soil Science, and you will be eligible to apply for Chartered Scientist status.
