Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

Creative Outdoor Learning is a practical course, providing ideas,activities and approaches. It aims to support any member of staff wishing to develop an outdoor ethos or approach in their setting or school.

With the agreed common understanding in education theory that it is through creativity, cognitive challenge and practical application that learning skills are developed, we look at how the outdoors offers us all of these.

  • Understand the philosophy, research and principles surrounding outdoor learning.
  • Experience practical activities and knowledge of how and where to acquire resources on a minimal budget.
  • Reflect on and create plans for moving forward in your own setting/school.
Evidence underpinning this approach

Our training is based on our Path to Success methodology, developed by our Head of Education, David Maytham, which is centered on talk-led, active and collaborative approaches to learning. Our methodology is grounded in the latest primary educational research from influential theorists such as Piaget, Dienes, Vygotsky, Skemp and Bruner. The Path to Success methodology promotes practical, fun and acheivable teaching methods and makes our first-hand experience of current teaching of real children in the primary classroom accessible to all. 

Our methods have been actively used in the classroom and have been found to have a significant effect on the teaching of writing and children’s progress. We have received outstanding feedback, with 97% of people attending our training rating it as excellent.

How users/participants can evaluate success

Success of our course is immediately evaluated by delegates through an evaluation form, this gives people attending the course the opportunity to rate their experience of the course and the trainer. It also gives people the opportunity to provide comment on what they liked about the course and what thought needed changing. Following the course, success can be evaluated by comparing your experience in the classroom after implementing the ideas and practices from our course and comparing these experiences with the objectives of the course. Ask yourself these questions:

  • Have our ideas helped to create a writing climate in your classroom?
  • Are you delivering high quality teaching of poetry and narrative writing?
  • Has the composition and effect of children’s writing improved in your class?
  • Are the games and activities we taught you supporting you to deliver high quality teaching of spelling, grammar and punctuation?
  • Have our methods and strategies led to all children making rapid progress?

You are more than welcome to then provide your feedback of this back to us.
