These schools have worked with us to discover more about the National Park and their local environment. They have become ambassadors for their areas and the National Park as a whole.

 

 

National Park Ambassador Schools NPAS_logowill be launched to all primary schools in the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority area in 2015.

The quality outdoor learning experiences have strong links to physical adventurous activities. The well-being curriculum is greatly enhanced and respect for the outdoor environment is promoted.

There are ample opportunities for teachers to grow in confidence in using their outdoor areas at school, in their local communities and further afield  in the Brecon Beacons National Park area.
