The Outdoor Learning Service provides training, teaching and outdoor education experiences for pupils and teachers in East Lothian Council’s schools.
To find out the educational services we offer for your school see Just for Primary , Just for Secondary Schools or For Teachers. To reserve places on any of these sessions please contact your nominated Outdoor Learning Teacher.
Each school in East Lothian Council can access a number of outdoor teaching days delivered by one of the Outdoor Learning Service’s teachers. The purpose of these days is to provide a program of outdoor activities that complement and extend the pupil’s class-room based learning. The overall learning objectives and purpose of each school’s program should be agreed in collaboration between the class-teacher and the Outdoor Learning Teacher.
