Training & Education

We want to raise aspirations and inspire school children and local groups. The Park is a fantastic place to explore and learn. 

Whilst much of this can be done independently, Our Parklife can arrange education visits that provide a unique learning experience for students of all ages as well as provide training opportunities to students with a range of educational and career developing experiences.

Our education and work experience opportunities for children, young people and adults:

Educational Visits

The Park is an amazing place to explore, and is one big outdoor classroom! Teachers and group leaders can book a visit with a member of our experienced team. We work with teachers and local group leaders who would like to bring a group to the Park and bring a range of subjects to life. 

We focus on connecting local people to the Park in an engaging and inspiring way. 

Education visits are often related to conservation, biodiversity and the Parklands but can also give an insight into different career paths such as  engineering, facilities management, customer and visitor services, sustainable energy, hospitality and events. 

We work with you to understand what you’d like to get from the visit and make the necessary arrangements on the Park.
