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.

Neal Anderson has stepped down as IOL Professional Standards Manager

At this stage of the maturing of IOL, the leading task is the merging of 4 representative organisations. In order to manage priorities, further work on professional standards has been paused. Neal Anderson has stepped away from his role so that the next stages of development for IOL and the wider sector, whatever they may be, can be completed as cleanly and as efficiently as possible.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank Neal for the contribution he has made in developing the services IOL has to offer our members which has ranged from setting the standards for the Professional Services that we offer to being part of developing the apprenticeship programme for the whole outdoor sector to name just a few of his accomplishments.  Achieving the status of being recognised as a Chartered body and continued professional development is still very much part of our vision for the future, which is only possible because of the foundations that Neal has built.
