Field Studies Council: Bringing Environmental Understanding to All

Teachers, want to get outside more?

Outdoor learning is a key element of education, with students of all ages benefitting academically and personally when time out of the classroom is included in their learning.

To help busy teachers FSC Scotland is sharing their passion and experience of outdoor learning through a series of teacher training weekends. The training will help participants develop fieldwork skills, boost confidence in taking students outside and try a range of activities to run back in school.
