The Ecology Centre has been running a highly successful environmental education programme since 1998. We are constantly changing and evolving our activities to reflect and support the changes in the curriculum. Each year we work with over 6000 people from schools, colleges and community groups to inspire them to experience and appreciate nature and our environment.
What We Do
We design and deliver inspirational and engaging educational sessions that allow the participants to connect with the natural world, with themselves and with each other. Our education programme is creative and innovative. We have a commitment to hands-on, experiential learning that is curriculum-linked and that enables participants to become successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors.
Our education officers have a wealth of knowledge and experience in all aspects of environmental education and can tailor sessions to the needs, abilities and interests of each group. Education Officers at The Ecology Centre are enthusiastic and engaging and have experience working with those with disabilities and challenging behaviour. All our Education Officers are enhanced disclosure checked.
