Work experience that will prioritise some of the AONBs work with undergrounding overhead electricity cables (partnership with UK Power Networks). Mapping where the overhead cables are and then assessing them as to their impact upon the landscape. This will particularly suit students with an interest or background in conservation. Some experience in using GIS software would be beneficial, though not essential as training can be given during the placement.
