Learning at Cogges

We truly make the most of the unique environment at Cogges and create interactive learning experiences to inspire children and adults of all ages. We deliver popular school programmes for primary children, hands-on traineeships for young people and run a fantastic programme of workshops, skill sharing and training for the public throughout the year.

Schools programme

Book a school visit for a unique, hands-on learning experience.  We cover different age ranges from the Early Years Foundation Stage through to Key Stage 2 and can offer full or half-day sessions tailored to the needs of your school and the curriculum.

Adult Learning

We have an ever-expanding community learning programme for adults running throughout the year, ranging from art club and crafts to sewing and weaving, gardening and growing, animal care, or traditional skillsharing with our team of volunteers.

Traineeships in land management

Cogges offers opportunities for some 16-24 year olds to learn new skills in land management. We have developed a programme of activities to engage young people and enable us to manage and improve the habitat at the same time! Trainees will learn many of the skills of traditional woodland management, along with ditch and pond management and charcoal making.
