EARLY YEARS - Outdoors practitioner

EARLY YEARS - Outdoors practitioner

This long term course is idea for local authorities seeking to support creative and regular play and learning in settings. Each participant has an opportunity to learn new ideas, try them out and share learning with colleagues.

The course consists of 5 training events, spread over at least 6 months. Staff from each setting share their experiences of developing new play and learning outdoors, in their setting. The course is suitable for any early years practitioner or teacher. Sessions are reflective and active - every session has an outdoor element, no matter the weather.

New ideas are shared, and participants are challenged to look at their long-term planning, resourcing and support for colleagues to ensure that learning is disseminated.

Participants typically take on the role of 'outdoor champion', and close links are built with authorities to support this after the training events have finished.
