It’s no surprise to the Outdoor Learning Team that our close partnership work with schools can support students in raising attainment. When making bookings with teachers we highlight how the unique opportunities we provide can do this. Now we have produced an ‘Outdoor Learning Service Raises Attainment’ table that clearly identifies and details – how our service achieves this. This document details Case Studies which show the depth and breath of the lessons we provide.
The table has 5 key sections;
1. Experiences provided – these are the different possible outcomes from the outdoor experiences we provide. Each outcome can contribute to raising attainment.
3. What does this look like? – here more detail is provided on the type of group and the kind of experiences that have taken place.
4. Case studies – this column provides hyper-links to actual case studies.
5. How can this be measured? – here the tools we can use to measure our impact are highlighted.
This table can be used when considering future programmes with the Outdoor Learning Service. The table can be found by clicking on this link.
