Free! Outdoor Learning CPD for Teachers

The LTS Outdoor Learning CPD programme is designed for teachers and early years’ practitioners to build capacity, develop skills and increase confidence in order that more children and young people have ‘regular and frequent’ opportunities to learn outdoors.

The sessions are intended to support staff following the publication of the guidance document ‘Curriculum for Excellence through outdoor learning’, the six regional conferences in May and June 2010 and the outdoor learning online resource.

The last 3 CPD sessions – Bridging the Gap through Outdoor Learning – are the largest sessions (in terms of capacity) being run and they are open to all practitioners – CLD workers, youth workers, voluntary sector organisations, teachers and others.

Follow the LTS link on the programme to book a place…
