Event description

Description

This course is open to primary or secondary teachers from the 20% (SIMD) most deprived primary and secondary schools in Scotland only.

The Learning in Local Greenspace programme will inspire and equip you as a teacher to lead regular outdoor learning sessions in local greenspace. You will undertake practical learning sessions in greenspace, co-plan learning experiences with colleagues and be supported in leading and assessing trips with your own pupils.

Building on the Attainment Challenge, we will focus on numeracy, literacy and health and wellbeing as curricular themes. Using greenspace will engage hard to reach pupils and move learning into a real world, enquiry based process.

There is also an expectation that you will share learning and opportunities with colleagues. The GfL team will support you in this, including opportunity for in-school coaching and co-leading sessions.

Course outcomes:

  • Be inspired and equipped to lead quality, curricular outdoor learning sessions.
  • Be supported to find and access a local greenspace venue - be it beach, woods, park or hotel grounds.
  • Be supplied with resources and lesson plans, bespoke to you.
  • Be supported to inspire colleagues and develop long term planning for learning in local greenspace.
