Canine Assisted Learning
Orchard Hill College has recently started a partnership with The Canine Assisted Wellbeing Group (CAWG) who are an organisation dedicated to improving mental health and emotional wellbeing through professional canine support.
This project is to support our students with their emotional wellbeing at college. Visits are linked in with student objectives and sessions are based on what our students are working on.
Many of our students who were initially frightened are now happy to be near and even engage with the dogs. This is a huge step in increasing their confidence in public and we are so proud of the work that is being done!
