Outdoor Learning in the South & Channel Islands

The Southern Region includes the beautiful coast, lakes, rivers, downs, open countryside, city centres and two National parks spread across the counties of Hampshire, West and East Sussex, Kent, Surrey, London, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire along with the Isle of Wight and Channel Islands. We have a great array of environments used by our members, from rural open spaces, dramatic coastlines, to open country and city centre provision. The region has a strong outdoor learning community with many centres and freelancers operating in the very diverse and active region.

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

Evidence successfully submitted on behalf of IOL to the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee

Andy Robinson (IOL Emplyers Group) has successfully submitted evidence on behalf of IOL to the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee and it has now been published it on the committee’s website. Direct link to the letter from IOL here. 


The response addressed these questions:


- How can the understanding and awareness of career opportunities in land-based sectors be improved among children and young adults?

- How effective is the education system at supporting young people seeking careers in land-based sectors? For example, are routes such as T levels and apprenticeships fit for purpose?

- What more can be done to facilitate new entrants, including those from non-rural backgrounds, into land-based sectors, including those considering a career change?

- Are colleges offering land-based education accessible and available to those seeking to enrol in courses? Are there gaps in coverage and if so, how can these be addressed?

- What role should schools, colleges, universities, and local and central government play in promoting and supporting careers in land-based sectors?

- Are there domestic or international examples of best practice in successfully promoting educational opportunities and careers in land-based sectors?
