NEW 2023 Outdoor Education 5-day
We are all aware of the importance of training and education within the classroom, lecture hall or boardroom. But if you are looking to bring that tuition to life in an exciting and immersive way, then taking your students or employees out into the ‘wild’ enhances and enriches their experience beyond measure. NEW for 2023 our Training Centre invites you to take part in our engaging Outdoor Education course, providing you with the necessary skills to organise and lead your own worthwhile offsite experiences.
This perfectly practical course will guide you step-by-step from the rationale behind offsite learning to taking part in trainer-led outdoor tasks to finally running and analysing your own activities out and about. It is ideal for those trainers and educators who are looking to make a marked difference in the way their training is executed within their organisations.
The programme is delivered over 5 days and involves classroom contact time, outdoor sessions, and an Erasmus+ Offsite Training Day. Our practical course will endeavour to provide you with the skills to implement your own outdoor experiences as part of a wider educational curriculum. The programme aims to be inclusive, immersive, and fully interactive. As such, daily content may change or develop as you, your peers and the course leader decide on the best path.
