Learning Outside the Classroom (LOC)
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.
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:
Discover the neuroscience behind the benefits of children being taught outside
Overcome the barriers, blocks and limitations
Gain ideas to maximise your school grounds for teaching at little or no cost
Learn to teach all subjects outside and link to the curriculum
Explore character development in an outdoor setting

Teacher Led Team-building (Teaching with TLC)
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. We call this 'Teaching TLC' (Team work, Leadership and Communication) skills.
Learn the principles and attitudes to support character development in all that we do
Overcome the barriers and blocks, practicalities and limitations
Experience flexing your style from teacher to facilitator
Develop strategies for working with challenging behaviour
Create the planning skill and resources for powerful sessions
Free bonuses* plus lots, lots more...
