The sessions were developed by the South Downs National Park Education Network to help schools deliver Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Each training session follows one or more of 6 key themes, which were developed following consultation with around 80 schools: using LOtC to deliver specific curriculum subjects, specific curriculum topics, school ground development, using woodland effectively, fieldwork skills and health and wellbeing.

Session recordings will be made available here in due course and will be available until 31 March 2021.
