Online and Virtual Sessions
Our online sessions and activities are available through our virtual learning area on our website.
These may be useful for learners who are on the waiting list or who may be anxious at the thought of attending. The virtual sessions are a great way to familiarise learners with who we are and what we do!
We have a wide range of activities and Equine assisted learning session videos online for learners to enjoy and we can link them with one of our facilitators if they need some support through the programme.
We also have a range of activities for learners aged 5-8, 9-12 and 12-16+ as well as outdoor activities, activities with dogs and story time for the younger learners.
For learners on the waiting list or who would like to access the virtual learning programme instead of attending face to face the cost would be £20 per week (approx £120 per term)
Please note: Sessions are booked in term blocks and in advance so that we can allocate facilitators/tutors. Fees are payable for a whole term and invoiced at the beginning of each term. Please see our terms of business on the referrals page for further information.
Sessions are not transferrable once booked as we hold a waiting list. We are also not able to refund missed sessions during the coronavirus pandemic but will make every effort to link with learners online.
