Are you looking for open one-day training courses and events specific to your sector/area?
These one-day and half-day courses and events (often run at a reduced rate with key educational partners) may be of interest. They are designed to help your engagement with the John Muir Award.
1. Literacy and Nature Training
The aim of these sessions is to give anyone from schools, youth and adult groups practical experience of activities that help develop literacy skills in the outdoors. Using the Explorer’s Guide to The Lost Words we will explore writing and teaching techniques, make our own ‘spells’ and art work inspired by nature and enjoy time out in beautiful outdoor settings. The sessions will also showcase creative examples from John Muir Award groups.
Hidden Garden, Glasgow
