Monkey World is Pleased to have Achieved the Learning Outside the Classroom Award!
Monkey World knows there is more to learning outside the classroom than just monkey-ing around, and so was pleased to receive recognition of the efforts of its education team by the Learning Outside the Classroom accreditation.
The Department for Education have recently endorsed the LOtC Quality Badge as the principal accreditation that schools should look for when using external providers of LOtC experiences. At Monkey World, the dedicated education team can lead schools and youth groups through workshops and presentations on a variety of subjects to support the curriculum. With over 260 primates of 22 species, the curriculum comes to life at the rescue centre - whether learning about conservation, the impacts of deforestation, life cycles or even chimpanzee politics!
As well as the obvious science links, Monkey World’s rescue work lends itself to persuasive writing, and the rare and endangered species at the park often find themselves at the centre of art projects.
Education Team Leader, Annie Bentley has said:
“We are delighted to have our efforts for schools recognised by the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom. We know that pupils visiting Monkey World leave with a better understanding of not only our own work in primate rescue and rehabilitation, but also the wider issues affecting primates across the globe. As educators, there is no better feeling than seeing young people leave Monkey World inspired and determined to protect these endangered species.”
