Field Studies Council: Bringing Environmental Understanding to All

Training Resources

This site will help you to develop the skills and knowledge you need to work with secondary schools in outdoor spaces. 

By moving through these training units you will be guided through range of outdoor teaching materials covering topics from good pedagogy and behaviour management to activity ideas for a range of curriculum subjects.

The main training yourself section is divided in to a number of distinct training units, each with their own set of learning outcomes. As well as written guidance and background information, training consists of activities you can carry out in parks on your own or with colleagues, downloadable worksheets, and links to other useful external resources.

There is also guidance in running your own training sessions, helping you to disseminate what you have learnt to colleagues.

So, pick and choose from the menu of training, or work your way through all the units, either way we hope you leave this site more confident and inspired to work with secondary schools in outdoor spaces.
