A 24-hour residential course for NQTs and trainee teachers at Stibbington Centre for Environmental Education from 5pm on Friday 15 June to 5pm on Saturday 16 June

Does your school have NQTs this year?

Or NQTs joining you in September?

Would ideas for learning outdoors be useful?

Or extra confidence to lead school visits?

Or practical, “hands-on” experience?


Accommodation will be at Stibbington Residential Centre, an award-winning Eco Centre, with a Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge.

The Centre is located beside the A1 in north west Cambridgeshire at PE8 6LP and is headquarters of Cambridgeshire Environmental Education Service (CEES). The Centre’s site includes a residential centre, a separate day visit centre, a wildlife garden and imaginatively designed grounds.

The course will include:

 A variety of ‘hands on’ environmental learning experiences suitable for use with primary aged children across the curriculum.

 Practical approaches to bringing literacy and numeracy to life using the school grounds.

 Techniques for managing groups in the outdoor environment.

 An understanding of health and safety in the outdoors, and of assessing and managing risk.

 Opportunities to share experiences with other teachers new or nearly new to the profession.

This short residential course aims to help new teachers to realise the potential of the environment outside the classroom as a rich educational resource, and to gain increased confidence for leading and managing learning experiences outdoors.

The course will also provide an opportunity to appreciate the value of learning in a residential setting.

FURTHER CPD OPPORTUNITIES: In addition to the courses listed above, CEES also offers a tailor-made service for whole staff professional development days. Programmes will be discussed and agreed with schools, to support school improvement priorities and may include core and foundation subjects. All sessions involve “hands-on” learning activities suitable for use in any school grounds.
