Discover & learn

Gwent Wildlife Trust has a wealth of education and community learning opportunities available for schools, children, teachers, families and the public.

Schools

GWT offers schools the chance to take their pupils into the outdoor environment. At our education centres, classes can be booked in to learn more about wildlife and the environment or to learn from the national curriculum using the great outdoors. To find out more, please visit our Magor Marsh page or go to the People & Wildlife Project page.

INSET (In Service Training for teachers)

To further your use of the outdoors and wildlife in teaching the national curriculum, GWT offers a series of training days to encourage teachers to take their own classes outdoors. For teachers interested in discovering more about how they can use wildlife to engage their pupils, click here for the Derek Upton Centre at Magor Marsh and click here for the Environmental Resource Centre at Ebbw Vale.

Community

Our work with education doesn’t stop with schools. We offer a range of opportunities for adults and youngsters alike to get involved. We run an exciting Wildlife Warriors course for teenagers.
Our education program (detailed in each year’s Event Guide) covers everything from fun days for all the family to in depth professional courses for the experts. To find out what’s going on right now, visit to our Events page.
 

Magor Marsh Education

Our education services at Magor Marsh include school trips, training for teachers, and home education training. The teachers there specialise in using wildlife and the outdoor to teach and explore the national curriculum for all ages and abilities, including children with Special Educational Needs.
