The Classroom and Beyond
- Outdoor Education Unit

What we do
We can help you with all matters relating to outdoor education and learning outside of the classroom.

We aim to provide a prompt, professional and friendly service, making sure any educational visits or learning outside of the classroom that you provide for your students are both high quality and safe.

We also:

  • Provide advice and support to schools and governing bodies, developing and writing education/offsite visit policies that reflect current safety regulations and good practice
  • Provide Headteachers and governing bodies with assurances that visits have been planned according to nationally recognised best practice criteria. This is carried out using our well established on-line approval and monitoring system (e-Go)
  • Provide a wide range of Continuous Professional Development (CPD) training opportunities which support staff in managing and leading educational visits and how to develop outdoor learning within their own grounds and/or locality. Bespoke training for smaller groups of staff or whole school can be arranged.

"I would like to say a big thanks to you and your team for the work that you do on behalf of our students. There is no doubt in my mind that your work in developing this sytem (e-Go) for Kent has done much to ensure the safety of all those youngsters who take part in educational visits. Keep up the good work"  DT-Educational Visits Coordinator, St Johns Gravesend
