 Learning Outside the Classroom (LOC) 

Transforming Teaching

LOC innovates and enriches our pedagogy, and connects with children. A growing body of evidence is demonstrating how it engages learners, improves behaviour, increases attainment, supports heath and wellbeing and makes learning more enjoyable.  

Whatever your experience level, this teacher CPD event will help you develop more confidence to harness the opportunities that the outdoors provide for teaching and learning. 

Expect this event to be fully participative, experiential and entirely outdoors. There will be numerous opportunities to share best practice with other passionate educators from your region.

You will come away with pragmatic tips, tools and ideas so you can feel confident to take more of your teaching outside immediately, be it for curriculum or character based learning. You will:

 Educating for Character 

Resilience, confidence, collaboration and communication are top of the list of qualities and life skills required by employers and universities. In a work place that’s rapidly changing and an education framework with an increasing focus on standardisation, there’s a greater need than ever to support the growth and development of our students’ character. Instead of relying on third party providers and residential trips, use this course to help your teachers develop the skills to deliver the same outcomes in your own schools. 

img-green-tick1.gif Learn the principles and attitudes to support character development in all that we do

img-green-tick1.gif Overcome the barriers and blocks, practicalities and limitations

img-green-tick1.gif Experience flexing your style from teacher to facilitator

img-green-tick1.gif Develop strategies for working with challenging behaviour

img-green-tick1.gif Create the planning skill and resources for powerful sessions

img-green-tick1.gif Free bonuses* plus lots, lots more...
