About this course

This 4 day Level 3 Outdoor Learning training course is for anyone wants to implement curriculum led outdoor learning at their setting. Outdoor Learning is proven to dramatically improve attainment for children (see our research page). Also, job satisfaction for teachers.  This 4 day course merges the Level 2 Outdoor Learning Practitioner  and Level 3 Co-ordinating the Outdoor Curriculum. This equips you to establish learning outside the classroom as a whole school approach. Therefore, this training is perfect for teachers, head teachers and any other interested education practitioners. It is the ideal way to train a team of staff who can embed outdoor learning into your curriculum. What’s more, this combined course is better value than doing the level 2 and 3 training on separate occasions.

The Level 3 Outdoor Learning training  follows the units for both Level 2 and Level 3 courses.
