Outdoor Learning training
Outdoor Learning is subject based learning that takes place in a natural environment. Lessons are pre-planned and have a fixed outcome and can therefore be measured against specific learning targets. For example, making 2D shapes in outdoor maths. Above all, learning outdoors improves childrens’ physical and mental health and consequently their overall well-being. Outdoor Learning training courses cover a range of topics. This includes learning and development, managing risk and also using a natural space in a sustainable way. In addition, trainees plan a programme of Outdoor Learning lessons (Level 2) or map out a whole school approach (Level 3),
