Outdoor Education Teacher Training

Everyone learns differently. For some young people, traditional classroom learning is difficult, but take them out into the real world and suddenly it can all make sense.

More and more studies are showing the benefits, and chance of a better future, that outdoor learning can bring for young people.

Here at Lakeside we can develop your teaching skills – and your CV – with our accredited outdoor learning courses.

Call us on 01539 539 000 or email lakesideenq@fyldecoastymca.org to arrange your free taster day now!

  • Enjoyment

  • Health and wellbeing
  • Social and emotional awareness
  • Environmental awareness
  • Activity skills
  • Personal qualities
  • Skills for life
