Slimbridge Wetland Centre Receives Award for Outstanding Outdoor Learning

Slimbridge Wetland Centre Receives Award for Outstanding Outdoor Learning

WWT Slimbridge are celebrating after receiving a Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge, a national award for centres providing an excellent standard of outdoor education sessions.

The Slimbridge Learning Team caters for pre-school through to tertiary years, as well as uniform groups and home educators, delivering a range of informative and engaging, curriculum-linked learning sessions.

In order to achieve the badge of approval, the centre was required to meet a number of quality indicators and commit to maintaining a high standard of effective learning experiences, outside where possible. The centre has proved its ability to evolve classes and programmes to meet learner needs and provide a safe environment for children and adults.

Sue Belej, WWT Slimbridge Learning Manager said:

“We’re delighted to have received this award for our education provision. We pride ourselves on delivering hands-on discovery sessions covering habitat, species and conservation themes, both guided and self-guided for a wide range of ages and abilities. We look forward to welcoming more groups to Slimbridge under the LOTC Quality Badge.”

For schools with 30% or more of pupils eligible for free school meals, the Slimbridge Learning Team are able to offer free visits to the centre with optional guided learning sessions and compulsory outdoor adventures.
