Rangers hold current First Aid at Work certificates and a standard First Aid kit is always carried when leading an educational party. Please note that the staff in charge of a visiting group are responsible for the administration of First Aid and no group will be allowed on site without a suitably qualified First Aider. An additional First Aid kit is held at the Information Desk at the Visitor Centre and in all Ranger vehicles. It is the responsibility of the visiting group's staff to ensure that any specific medication required by a pupil is available when required, and where necessary the Education Ranger is informed of any such condition. This could also include any allergies to bee stings, plants, etc.
The venue tries to accommodate the requirements of visitors with special needs. Visiting staff must ensure that suitable arrangements are in place in order that appropriate supervision and assistance is available to pupils with special needs when booking the visit. Physical Impairment � Wheelchair access is possible throughout the Visitor Centre but is difficult elsewhere due to the terrain of the Estate. Visual Impairment - The Visitor Centre has an audio-visual show. Pupils with visual impairment are welcome to sit in the front row. Hearing Impairment - Pupils with hearing impairment are welcome to sit in the front row for the audio-visual show. We are aware that clarification of specific provision may be needed by schools in relation to more detailed risk assessment requirements for certain pupils. In such circumstances we would invite schools to contact us.
We are happy to arrange the visit/s around our set activities (see our website for details). If you would like to develop your own programme for a school trip or study group, we would be pleased to offer our assistance and facilities.
The Elan Valley Estate comprises over 70 square miles of spectacular scenery, including moorland, woodland, rivers and six dams with their associated reservoirs.
Groups who have previously visited the Estate have studied woodland management, man's use of a glaciated valley and management of an area important for water resources, tourism and conservation.
The Estate is an ideal location for studying topics such as biodiversity, conservation, woodland ecology and management issues, as well as the conflicts and benefits of the construction of dams.
