Integrated and accessible personal development

IOL CEO Andy Robinson's - 'Perspective' piece in Horizon's magazine 85

Author: Institute

Whilst I'm in danger of being a little too England-centric, I think the current consultation by OFSTED is reflective of the developing opportunities for outdoor learning in education through schools. It is encouraging to see that OFSTED is proposing under its new inspection framework that its inspectors will make a judgement on the personal development of learners. The importance of developing young people's life skills in preparation for life beyond the school is recognised by The Social Mobility Commission, Sutton Trust and the Education Endowment Foundation. All have recognised how good personal development can narrow the gap between pupils from more disadvantaged backgrounds and their peers.
