EDUCATIONAL WORK

Our company is actively involved in three aspects of education in our industry.

1. Animal Roadshows for Schools

We have been running roadshows at special events for the past 40 years and now offer a tailor-made service to schools. As we all know, outcomes across the curriculum improve when pupils learn from first-hand experience. Therefore, what could be better when starting a Science project than to investigate real live animals visiting your school, complete with trainers who can give educational talks and answer questions?

2. Promoting accredited vocational qualifications for our industry

Our company were at the forefront of introducing NVQ/QCF qualifications. Our staff were among the first to gain City and Guilds accredited qualifications in animal training. We were also amongst the first to have members of staff qualify as OCR A1 assessors, which enables us to provide an accredited qualification route through our company. We currently have the largest employed workforce of qualified animal trainers in the UK. One member of our staff won the City and Guild Medal of Excellence and had this accolade presented to her at Buckingham Palace by the Duke of Edinburgh in 2011. She also went on to win the City and Guilds Innovator of the Year. If you are interested please see details on our work experience page.

3. Promoting awareness of animals and the promotion of natural science

Amazing Animals has had a longstanding career in the development of Natural History Documentaries and books. We have been actively involved in several scientific projects that have been made possible only with the use of our trained animals. We believe that our wild animals are the ambassadors for their cousins in the wild state. By showcasing wild animals to the general public we indirectly help create more awareness for their conservation.
