Institute for Learning Outside the Classroom – IOL
FInd out more about the launch of a new national governing body for Forest Schools on the 7th July 2012 - the Forest School Association.
The Institute for Outdoor Learning (IOL) encourages outdoor learning by developing quality, safety and opportunity to experience outdoor activity provision and by supporting the good practice of outdoor professionals. The IOL has a special interest group for forest schools which you can join if you are a member of the IOL.
Council for Learning Outside the Classroom
The Council for Learning Outside the Classroom is the national voice for learning outside the classroom. We believe that every young person (0-19yrs) should experience the world beyond the classroom as an essential part of learning and personal development, whatever their age, ability or circumstances.
