On Thursday 10th of November you will have the opportunity to ask a panel of teachers and practitioners all the questions you may have about using outdoor learning as a context for learning in your establishment. Whether it’s as part of a nurture programme, to raise attainment in literacy or numeracy or for developing your school grounds we will help to answer your questions and give some ideas and advice to utilising the wonderful resource that is outdoor learning.

This professional learning initiative by the University of Edinburgh in partnership with the British Council and Learning for Sustainability Scotland, is a timely opportunity for teachers to grapple with what Learning for Sustainability means, what existing and new skills and knowledge are required, and how this might all look in the your school context. Connecting directly with Curriculum for Excellence, involvement will enable you to effectively plan for and implement Learning for Sustainability approaches in your school.
This programme offers teachers the opportunity to engage and collaborate over a ten week period which includes two full day face to face sessions at the beginning and at the end of the period, supported by fortnightly inputs from online materials.
Teachers who successfully complete the programme will be eligible to apply for overseas study visits to partner schools in other countries. Learning can be used to strengthen international links at your school, enriching teaching and learning through partnerships and joint projects.
The professional learning is fully funded.
