Upskilling new teachers!

We work with local teacher training providers to empower those new to the profession to take pupils outside of the classroom and feel confident teaching in an informal learning environment. 

The training includes the use of current scientific research to explain the benefits of learning outside of the classroom, workshops on the integration of informal learning into existing curriculums and demonstrations of some of the techniques that Whipsnade Zoo uses to make learning engaging and meaningful. Participants also get the opportunity to explore our beautiful site and the animals that live here to become comfortable bringing groups of pupils.
