Outdoor Learning in the South West

The South West has a varied terrain offering a wide range of outdoor learning opportunities. We have a coastline that provides a huge amount of activities from Coasteering to Offshore Yachting, moors which host some of the toughest events, Ten Tors and the steepest hills for cyclists riding from John o groats to Lands End. The residential and outdoor education sector is well established with a variety of colleges and Higher Education institutions offering a wide range of courses, and we still have Local Education Authority Centres. Employment in the outdoors is high, and we have a strong freelance opportunities, all in England's mildest climate!

The voluntary committee represents IOL in your region, get in touch with us. We wish to represent your views.

Cornwall Council to close down Cornwall Outdoors

Sadly Cornwall Council has decided to close down Cornwall Outdoors on 31st July.

The Council is hoping to find a provider to take on Porthpean Centre but it probably won't happen by the preferred date of 1st August. The Council plans to sell the other 2 centres.

All centre based staff have been made redundant as of the end of July ending 36 years of Cornwall Outdoors delivering to around 8000 young people each year.
