Outdoor Learning Funding ?

For Teachers, TA’s, Schools & Nurseries ages 0-11 years CPD Outdoor Learning Training & Resources

Where there is a will, there is always a way!


Schools & Nurseries – we have face to face & online options for you.  Something for every budget!

Sport or Pupil Premium?


Starting small?

Using Premiums

Many of our schools opt to use Sports or Pupil Premium to fund their training with us.  Our training & resources promote healthy learning styles and are a great way to balance indoor passive methods with outdoor active methods, while still teaching from the curriculum. 

Getting a grant

Although getting a grant can take some time and is not always easy to do and can be time-consuming.  There are some out there. 

Don't go for Whole School Training

Some of our schools try other ways to train up their staff that can be more cost-effective.  It may take longer but ultimately the same goals are achieved in the end. Here are some examples of what some of our schools and nurseries have done. 

– INSET Day – If you are a small setting. Join forces with other local nurseries and schools.

– Big Settings/Academies – INSET Day – Select a few staff from each school and come together for one day. Next year send the rest!

– Big settings/academies – Online Training – Choose one teacher per year or one key stage per year and work your way through!

Why leaders in education and even celebrities love us ?

We have a 100% success rate!  Our training works and it sustains!
