training and support

Preparing bespoke courses on economics, policy and accounting and supporting our clients through coaching

We offer training and support as part of our project delivery such as technical workshops for our clients and engagement events with their internal or external stakeholders. Such support could be during the project, as part of the design and delivery, or at the end for disseminating the findings. 


As part of our natural capital accounting service, we also coach our clients so that their in-house teams can lead on preparing the accounts, enabling them to repeat the process without external help in the future. We see repeat accounts through these clients, such as Forestry England, Northumberland Water and United Utilities. 


We also prepare bespoke training courses for cost benefit analysis, economic valuation, REACH legislation, Environmental Liabilities Directive and more general introduction to environmental economics. 


What training services are available?


We offer a range of training options, both online and in-person, such as:


One-off events: Walkthroughs of analysis and results for project teams and broader audiences, or introductory sessions on specific topics (e.g., an overview of the natural capital approach).


Multi-day courses: Short courses providing comprehensive overviews and deep dives into areas of environmental economics such as key concepts, economic valuation methods, cost benefit analysis, and practical applications. These courses often feature in-session exercises and take-home assignments to improve learning.


Coaching: Personalized one-on-one sessions conducted throughout a project, aimed at capacity building and knowledge sharing (e.g., supporting the development of a natural capital account).


Here are some examples of the bespoke in-person and online training sessions we've crafted:
