Learning Outside the Classroom
July Update from European Study Tours
LOtC Awards for Excellence and Innovation
Schools, early years settings and youth organisations are encouraged to enter the 2009 Learning Outside the Classroom Awards, which recognise the innovative use of learning outside the classroom and demonstrate the benefits of getting children out and about.
The Awards provide the perfect opportunity for educational centres to showcase exciting and inspiring activities taking place in the school grounds, local environment or further afield. Judges will be looking for shining examples of institutions that place learning outside the classroom at the heart of what they do. The deadline for entries is the 17th July, and application forms can be downloaded from the LOtC website www.lotc.org.uk
