About Kylie

When did you start working for LtL and what does your job involve?

I started at LtL in Spring 2018.

I visit schools in the Midlands, the North of England, and Wales, and train teachers and staff to deliver education outdoors as part of the Schools Nature Grant Programme.

The 3 experiences that have best equipped you for this role?

I love being outdoors – I have completed both the Yorkshire and National Three Peak Challenges, and enjoy spending time walking in and exploring the Peak District, Lake District and Wales. I am always on the go and there is always another adventure just around the corner!

My previous experience with The Scout Association involved working with schools in deprived areas to adapt the national curriculum to become more vocational and to engage those who struggled with mainstream education. In addition to this, I have experience working with young offenders, young people with disabilities and special educational needs, and people with English as a second language, which has helped me learn how to adapt my teaching capabilities and training skills in all settings.

My previous experience with outdoor bush craft skills and woodland works has continued to be a big hobby of mine. Give me a few tools and a bit of wood and I’ll be on my way.

Kylie’s LtL Experience

What has been your best day at LtL and why?

I love going to all the many different schools and seeing how so many teachers and staff members are doing such amazing things with the pupils outdoors. I love to share good practice and hear new ideas.
It’s also inspiring to hear how the schools are doing after the training and the progress they have made, and I love getting feedback from the sessions I have been involved with.

Why a rucksack and walking sticks?

Walking and being outdoors represents freedom and happiness to me. In the past, I have managed to overcome both physical and mental strains and I always feel better when I am climbing a mountain or exploring Mother Nature.
