For those looking to incorporate real world learning experiences for their Biology, Psychology or Animal Management students, our Post 16 half-day conferences provide a unique balance of formal lectures and focused outdoor learning, to engage students and facilitate key learning outcomes as detailed in the overview documents below.

Our half-day conferences run during designated weeks in the Autumn, Spring and Summer terms.

Conferences run from 10:30am to 1:30pm (including a mid-morning, 20-minute break with tea and coffee provided) leaving plenty of time in the afternoon for you and your students to enjoy the zoo. If you are booking the Wildlife Conservation Conference and would like to include an additional session (at no extra cost) on Classification then please phone to confirm: 01962 777970.
