School Staff Outdoor Learning CPD @ Weston Park offer school staff teams a day of practical outdoor learning skills in a stunning setting. Whether you are upskilling your staff in delivering highly effective outdoor learning sessions, want to offer them a productive team building, well-being day, are hoping to inspire them to bring more outdoor learning into their planning or would like to focus on particular skills such as fire-lighting, risk-benefit assessing and campfire cooking, we will create a fun, engaging and inspiring CPD day for all your staff that will have a hugely positive impact on their well-being as well as their teaching.
We can also combine any of our above EKO curriculum linked sessions with CPD days for school staff by including activities in the day that staff would like to see run with their class before having a go themselves in their school setting. Please contact Natasha to talk through your requirements.
