We have planned a practical, informative and inspirational day designed to equip you with the ideas, confidence and passion to extend outdoor learning in your own settings. We will be making clear links to Numeracy and Literacy in the Curriculum and examining how to evidence best practice and outcomes most A mixture of formal presentations and hands on workshops will be delivered on the day.
Our Keynote speaker is Wendy Atherton on Mud Monsters in Congleton. Wendy speaks honestly and passionately about her journey of developing an outstanding outdoor learning setting over the last decade. Wendy has spoken at our events before and has been a real hit.
