At the Scottish SPCA we believe our support to every school in Scotland should extend further than our FREE annual workshops. We want to support young people’s health and wellbeing, enhance their literacy and numeracy skills, introduce innovative ways to engage with STEM and inspire future career pathways.
Explore the different ways to learn with the Scottish SPCA below!

By taking part in the Scottish SPCA's virtual Animal WISE world, you and your class will:

FREE interactive workshops
Our 2020 free workshops are available to book. At the Scottish SPCA we aim to prevent cruelty and bring those found guilty of such acts to justice. In our hour-long Animal Advocates workshop, the classroom becomes a court room as we use a real life investigation to generate discussion and debate.
Pupils will get the chance to read evidence, interviews and statements from vets and Scottish SPCA inspectors before taking on characters such as the defendent, the prosecution and the sherrif in a court case role play.
Animal Ambassadors activity pack
Are you in secondary school, college or university? Are you creative? Do you like sharing your opinion? Do you like to learn new things? If yes, this is for you!
The Scottish SPCA needs to raise public awareness of animal welfare issues to help us protect animals living in Scotland today. Our challenge for you is we want you to imagine you are our newest recruit in the Scottish SPCA's communications team. We need you to decide how you would educate the public about the impact of key issues such as the puppy trade and fireworks on animal welfare in Scotland today.
We have five topics listed in the Animal Ambassadors booklet below. In order to achieve the honour of being one of the Scottish SPCA's Animal Champions we would like you to complete public awareness campaigns for at least three of them and share your creations with us. For each topic you will need to do some project planning, conduct some research and create different texts and infographics to convey the required key messages. Be as creative as you like, we have provided you with some key information to help you get started so please download the booklet and good luck!
