The Outdoor Learning Cards have been developed by the outdoor Education Advisers’ Panel (chaired by Martin Smith, course tutor) as a resource to support teachers and youth leaders who wish to deliver exciting and inspirational outdoor learning activities.
The outdoor learning cards activities contribute directly to a wide range of educational and developmental 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 – developing good map reading skills
- Team Building and Problem Solving – how to challenge your young people
- Bouldering – use of low level climbing walls
- Journeying – local visits organised by young people
The cards are supported by a handbook and CD that provide detailed information on all aspects of activity delivery.
An element of the course will be practical, so please dress appropriately
