Alongside carrying out activities in schools and in the local community, we also deliver a training programme in collaboration with the Institute for Education aimed at primary school teachers in outdoor learning through nature.
The four-week course provides teachers with the skills and competencies to deliver curriculum-linked activities in an outdoor setting through fieldwork, lectures and self-study materials. Upon successful completion, teachers will gain a MQF Level 6 Award in Teaching Outdoor Learning through Nature, and as representatives of active citizenship you will be able to demonstrate the ways in which learning through nature can act as a valuable platform for interpersonal, intercultural, and civic competences.
