High Quality Outdoor Education in Wales

took place at Kent Mountain Centre, Llanberis, 9th December 2016
The Outdoor Education Advisers Panel in Wales are seeking funding to translate ‘High Quality Outdoor Education’ into Welsh. Before they commission translators they want to consult with providers to ensure that the new document is fit for purpose in Wales (that it matches the new Welsh Curriculum for instance). This event was an opportunity for you to contribute to the process.
Arwel Elias (OEAP) outlined his inspiring vision for bringing together providers from the length and breadth of Wales (all singing from the same hymn sheet) into an effective lobby for Outdoor Learning at Welsh Parliament. During his talk, Arwel explained how the new Welsh Curriculum seems tailor made to be supported by Outdoor Learning in all its diversity and through its myriad providers in Wales.

Arwel then led us in an interesting exploration the ways in which the new curriculum could be supported by the ‘High Quality Outdoor Learning’ document which, as you would expect, are numerous.

Finally he offered us an action plan.
