Teacher/Leader Courses

We firmly believe that outdoor education isn’t the preserve of outdoor education instructors working in centres but can be delivered by teachers, youth workers and group leaders in their settings – school grounds, playing field and youth clubs.

OLC-headeer2The Outdoor Education Advisory Panel (OEAP) has developed a series of cards to assist delivery and covering the basics.

We offer a one-day practical course on using the pack that provides teachers, and staff working with young people the resources and skills needed to deliver high quality and exciting outdoor learning activities in and around the school or youth club grounds. The activities are relevant at all key stages and age groups and across curriculum subjects.

The Outdoor Learning Cards activities contribute directly to a wide range of educational and development aims for young people and cover four elements of Outdoor Learning that can be delivered on a school/youth club site and surrounding environment:

  • Orienteering
  • Team Building and Problem Solving
  • Bouldering and Traverse walls
  • Journeying and Campcraft

£80 per participant and the card pack is £80.

The Environmental Learning Cards have been designed to give staff and young people an introduction to Discovering, Exploring, Sharing and Sustaining the Natural Environment. The Cards offer a range of activities that are of great value in themselves, but also provide the opportunity to support and add value to on-going programmes of learning.
