We can help you in 4 ways...



Inspire & Support You

If you've got the desire for outdoor learning but don't have the skills, knowledge or confidence to know what to do or the best ways to do it - we can support, enhance, train and concentrate on ensuring every element of your outdoor teaching activity is on curriculum, engaging learners, improving behaviour and increasing enjoyment through our teacher workshops




Teaching Materials

If you don't have the time to create a raft of new outdoor teaching materials across all core subject areas including co curricular and extra curricular content to develop character, team and leadership skills - then we can provide everything for you so you can simply pick up the resource and take your lessons outside immediately with our LOC Handbook and Arbojo   




Outdoor Learning Hubs

If you've got some outdoor space at your school, be it a patch of tarmac or three hundred acres yet you don't know how to make best use of it, then we can advise on a range of innovative solutions to suit even the smallest budget.

"A brief but heartfelt thanks for such a superb 'Learning Outside the Classroom' session earlier this week. The staff are still buzzing! You pitched it brilliantly and it will, I hope, propel us forward on this exciting journey. Well done and thankyou".

Titus Mills

"The SOuL team have helped to make outdoor education a reality at Hall Grove. Over the past two years, a six acre woodland has been transformed into a valuable educational resource. This has been achieved at a modest cost and at a pace that has suited the school. We have been fortunate to have worked with such a professional groups as SOuL and we recommend them without reservation".

Alastair Graham 

Head of Hall Grove School

"SOuL have been instrumental in providing the support we need to get our outdoor learning programme started. They have provided us with first rate staff training and really helpful advice on curricular and practical matters. There has been a host of potential pitfalls in getting this new subject integrated into our school and SOuL have helped us overcome hurdles and smoothed the way. We are very much looking forward to a long lasting partnership with Andy and his staff".

Ian Adams 

Head of Churchers College Junior School

"Thank you so much for your wonderful INSET package. The Arbojo pack has been in almost constant use.....even from those who seemed reticent before your training.....so well done, everyone seems to be converted and very comfortable to run with the activities demonstrated. A complete success, so thank you again!"
