Education

Schools

There are 2 secondary schools, 11 primary schools and 1 all through school in the area.  The latter, Ysgol Bro Hyddgen, has signed up to the UNESCO Associated School Programme network. A number of education providers have been working together to help local schools use the Dyfi Biosphere as an educational resource.

Dyfi Biosphere Education Group - DBEG

This group helps educators and learners get the maximum benefit from the special learning opportunities that the UNESCO Biosphere accolade offers. It is a network of both formal and informal professional education providers in the Dyfi Biosphere. It can identify and commission new education projects, provide signposting to potential partners, and give access to Biosphere related learning resources. Download the group’s vision statement and get in touch.

The Dyfi Biosphere Partnership has started a six-month project from February 2018, to create new opportunities for young people to envision a sustainable future for the area. This will build on the work done by members of the Dyfi Biosphere Education Group since 2010. A local consultant, Jane Powell, has been appointed to work with the Education Group and others - to find new ways to engage young people in discussions about energy, food, jobs and culture in the area.

  • Observe real life examples of human and natural physical processes of change, and how they are interrelated

  • Undertake meaningful enquiries that explore the concept of sustainability

  • Embrace the inspiration of the natural environment and human achievements of the Biosphere

 

Learning for the Dyfi Biosphere will enable learners to:

  • Identify the values and behaviours that will contribute to a sustainable future

  • Investigate how they can play part in contributing to a sustainable future, as creative and innovative members of their local and global community

  • Develop skills that they can use to help shape that future

 

Achieving these outcomes

 

We will promote that:

  • Accommodate a range of different learning styles, both formal and informal

  • Offer schools, colleges, communities and other organisations opportunities for collaboration

  • Draw together different aspects of learning or subject disciplines

 
Facilitating the process: The Dyfi Biosphere Education Group 

 

The DBEG is a growing and diverse network of both formal and informal professional education providers in the Dyfi Biosphere. The group exists to coordinate the delivery of effective education provision within a Biosphere context. As a thematic group of the Dyfi Biosphere Partnership network, it can identify and commission new education projects, provide signposting to potential partners, and give access to Biosphere related learning resources. It aims to evaluate the impact of its work through monitoring and observing changes in knowledge, understanding, skills, values and behaviour amongst those involved
