Aims and Objectives of Education at the World Owl Trust:
- Education at the World Owl Trust is inclusive. Everyone, regardless of age, ability, gender or creed should have access to World Owl Trust experiences and learning programmes.
- The World Owl Trust strives at all times to be a centre for excellence and a source of professional advice and training for people in the field of Owl Conservation.
- The World Owl Trust aims to be a transparent organisation with an open culture. It will freely share its work with colleagues, the conservation community and the wider public.
- The World Owl Trust takes into account learning theory and best practice in the fields of Environmental Education and Education for Sustainable development.
- The World Owl Trust is committed to reach the ‘unconverted’ as well as its supporters.
- The World Owl Trust aims to provide quality information about owls, their care and conservation, including making available quality handouts on subjects such as building owl boxes or managing a meadow.
- The World Owl Trust provides quality educational resources for schools, including tours around the centre and educational packs, designed to suit each year group in the different Key Stages.
- We aim for visitors to the Owl Centre to leave having gained some understanding of the plight of owls in the wild, the factors that affect them and what the World Owl Trust is doing to help.
- We aim to inspire and interest and love of owls through contact with the Owl Centre’s birds.
- The World Owl Centre is a cross-sectoral and cross-curricular phenomenon. With imagination it should be possible to learn everything from the arts to zoology in the Centre.
- As far as possible learning experiences are rooted in active rather than passive learning.
- World Owl Trust staff undertake sustainable working practices to convey appropriate messages and lead by example.
- The practice of Education at the World Owl Trust is about delivering directly the organisational mission statement.
