flowersSchools in Birmingham can apply for a bursary from the National Association for Environmental Education (NAEE).

The bursary is worth up to £400 and can be used to help schools take pupils to outdoor centres for hands-on learning opportunities in the natural environment. The bursary can help cover centre fees and transport costs. Schools will also receive a year’s NAEE membership.

You can use your bursary for a visit to one of the following five eligible centres:

  • Birmingham Botanical Gardens
  • Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Park
  • Mount Pleasant School Farm, Kings Norton
  • Martineau Gardens, Priory Lane, Edgbaston
  • The Ackers, Small Heath.

Priority is given to schools where access to green spaces is limited.

Applications are considered twice a year. The next deadline is 14th October 2016 for visits taking place in the Spring and Summer terms of 2017.

For more details, please visit the NAEE website.

Good luck!
