What are our Workshops like?
Each visit is totally different and can be tailored to your classes needs. Whilst keeping with the themes of Dogs Trust the Education Officers can offer workshops around a range of subjects including Maths, Science, Citizenship, Literacy and many more. All you would need to do would be to talk to the education officer to discuss your individual needs.
What we offer
Dogs Trust is the largest dog welfare charity in the UK. As well as rehoming dogs from one of our 20 Rehoming Centres, a large part of our work is to focus on Responsible Dog Ownership and Safety Around Dogs education. Dogs Trust Education Officers are available to deliver FREE interactive and engaging workshops to primary schools throughout the UK.
The key messages surround themes of Caring for Dogs, Responsible Dog Ownership and How to Stay Safe Around Dogs. They are linked to the National Curriculum supporting literacy, numeracy, citizenship, science and more!
What makes us a great choice?
We have a huge variety of fun, engaging and interactive workshops delivered by our dedicated team of Education Officers. All our workshops are tailored to meet the National Curricla for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Some of our Education Officers also have their own dogs that they can bring to meet you and your pupils for a truly unique interactive workshop experience.
We have Education Officers that cover all of the UK so you just need to search the map on our website to find your local one.
