New Online Outdoor Learning Course
Our Heritage Officer Lisa likes to get out and about! So, it’s a good thing that part of her job is to work with schools to help them take pupils outside to explore their local heritage. Over the last three years she has worked with over 30 schools to help them plan and deliver outdoor learning sessions. It is because of this that she was approached to contribute to a new online training course developed by the Scottish Advisory Panel for Outdoor Education, to share her top tips about working successfully with schools.
The Supporting Learning Outdoors (SLO) course will assist non-teaching staff: instructors, classroom assistants and third sector organisations, who want to work in partnership with schools to deliver meaningful curriculum based outdoor learning. The course will help participants to gain an understanding of the Curriculum for Excellence and the framework for delivering this to pupils. Furthermore, understand key messages on embedding and enhancing taught curriculum content into the real world context.
The course is available now and can be accessed at: www.sapoe.org.uk/courses/supporting-learning-outdoors/
