Education

At The Devon Bird of Prey Centre we offer a variety of educational programmes from school visits to onsite educational curriculum based courses.

 

We can bring a selection of birds into school for close encounters allowing students the rare opportunity to get close to these amazing birds delivered in a fun and personal way.

 

We have been working closely with some of the local schools providing a facility for special needs children (those with educational, emotional and behavioural problems) and mainstream students, we have been working with groups offering one off sessions a 6 week or 12 week course (one morning a week). We have found this to be a very rewarding and positive experience for the students.

 

The sessions are structured in such a way as to provide confidence building, teamwork and giving the students a wider understanding of the natural world around them. For the more structured 6 week and 12 week courses we offer a workbook which takes into consideration the individual abilities of the students and they can make this their own project if they wish to. The experience includes close contact, handling and flying a variety of Birds of Prey as we have over 40 onsite.
