ITINERARY

We offer training to teachers to equip them with a tool box of ideas and activities that they can in turn use to deliver outdoor education to children in their schools. We aim to develop confidence in staff as well as providing inspiration of how to use any available outdoor spaces. Outback2basics will work in conjunction with staff at the school to deliver a unique programme to suit the needs of the teachers. Our sessions closely link nature to the curriculum and current school projects where possible. Our CPD training can be delivered over a number of days or in a single session. We can deliver any of our sessions on school premises or at Outback2basics woodland in Buildwas, Shropshire. Twilight sessions available.

(Prices vary depending on group size, duration and location.)
