FULLY BOOKED - Train the Trainer Course for Delivering Experiential Learning in the Outdoors
For members wishing to deliver the new Institute for Outdoor Learning Continuous Professional Development offering ‘Delivering Experiential Learning in the Outdoors


13/01/2024 – 16/01/2024


Plas-y-Brenin, Conwy


IOL are pleased to announce dates of a Train the Trainer course for members wishing to deliver the new Institute for Outdoor Learning Continuous Professional Development offering ‘Delivering Experiential Learning in the Outdoors’.

This CPD course was described in detail in the Spring 2023 issue of Horizons. It comprises three modules all of which are experiential, and person centred in approach.

Module 1 ‘Facilitation’ offers participants opportunities to hone their skills and refine their approach to making learning easy for their clients.

Module 2 ‘Fostering a Connection’ allows participants to explore how they might use games, quizzes, storytelling and a host of other activities to foster their clients’ connection to the world around them and in so doing hopefully improve the health and wellbeing of both their clients and the planet.

Lastly, module 3 ‘Reflective Practice for Outdoor Learning Providers’ explores a fun approach to reflective practice that aims to make life and work easier and more enjoyable. All three modules are recognised as CPD for members of the Mountain Training Association and of the Association of Mountaineering Instructors.

The Train the Trainer course is also experiential, and person focused in keeping with the ethos of the modules it prepares you to deliver. Participants will have the chance to experience all three CPD modules (Facilitation, Fostering a Connection, and Reflective Practice for Outdoor Learning Providers) as participants before discussing delivery models, exploring resources, and planning next steps. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.

Applicants for the Train the trainer course should be able to demonstrate a commitment to delivering outdoor learning experientially and have had experience of training others. If you are interested in attending, please contact for more details and an application form. After completing the course, each participant will be assigned a supervisor to support them in planning and reviewing their first course. The cost of supervision is included in the price of the course.
