Outdoor learning INSET training for teachers and early years educators.

Covid-19 Changes – our training and support is free

We have launched free online training, webinars and resources for educators, teachers and parents. Please visit this news item to find out how you can get involved – www.ltl.org.uk/news/free-online-outdoor-learning-training/

Learning to Return Outdoors

We have two products aimed at supporting schools as they return post Covid-19. To maintain small social bubbles and social distance, the school grounds have never been so important.

We are producing an Outdoor Learning Timetable for the Autumn term.

You can also find out about our Learning to Return Outdoors programme, training and supporting teachers to take 30-50% of curricular lessons outdoors.

Training and Events

Our team of highly qualified professionals work with many hundreds of schools and nurseries each year to deliver outdoor learning INSET training.

All our courses include a suite of resources and support material, to make sure you maximise your learning.

The cost of our whole-school sessions is often lower than one staff member attending a Forest School Level 3. Ensuring that outdoor learning is an embedded, whole staff approach to quality learning and teaching is therefore sustainable and cost effective.

All our courses are delivered in a way that meets your schools needs – we match content to the school development plan or nursery priorities.
