What we offer
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.
