Outdoor Learning, Skills for Life

Active learning and adventure outdoors contributes to physical and environmental education, enhances other curriculum areas and develops skills for life and the world of work.

Training programmes can include standalone courses, or a series of theory and practical skills courses and training sessions as preparation for an expedition or adventure trip. For example, training can include:

  • Navigation theory
  • First Aid
  • VHF radio
  • Sea survival

All training courses are run to national governing body standards, eg. Royal Yachting Association and Canoe Wales/British Canoe Union.
