Learning in Northumberland National Park

We believe that the special qualities of Northumberland – its rich history, diverse species of flora and fauna, and great geographical features – provide a unique environment for learning outside the classroom, in which we can facilitate authentic, practical experiences, including the opportunity for individuals to direct their own learning.

We seek to involve the wide-ranging expertise of our own staff, plus the range of practitioners and businesses across the Park that we partner with, to ensure those experiences are rich in variety, as well as high quality. Visiting our dedicated learning pages to find out more.
