The Southend, Essex & Thurrock SLP, in partnership with the RHS Campaign for School Gardening, invite newly qualified or trainee teachers working within a primary or SEND setting to come and learn new skills to deliver outdoor learning opportunities with their pupils.

The training is suitable for those with or without a science specialism and with little or no previous experience of growing and horticulture.

“Really fun activities to encourage new teachers”

  • Gain the confidence to work in the garden with your class
  • Discover how to use the outdoors and plants for teaching Primary Science
  • Take a pack of achievable, practical projects and resources back to school
  • Be able to ask the experts
