BHWT Learning Programme

Many schools are interested in learning more about how they can help ex-battery hens, whether by re-homing them or by supporting pupils to understand how and why commercial egg production systems are often unable to meet the welfare needs of the hens.

We have developed a learning programme for primary schools that builds upon the unique benefits of learning with and about animals, and upon the skills and passion of our volunteers. Our learning programme offers accessible, curriculum-supporting resources to schools to help pupils explore food, farming and animal welfare topics and gain the knowledge and skills to make food choices that are healthy for both themselves and for farmed animals.

The programme will be launched later on this year ready for schools to begin using come October.

If you are a teacher or parent and would be interested in yours or your child’s school getting involved, simply email for more information.

If you are interested in becoming a Learning Volunteer for the charity please also email for further details, or download the role description here.
