The Council for Learning Outside the Classroom
We are proud to be members of The Council for Learning Outside the Classroom, the leading national voice championing high quality and varied educational experiences for children and young people. Launched as a registered charity in 2009, it aims, as do we, to champion learning outside the classroom and encourage young people to get out and about because research shows that children learn best through real life experiences.
