Emily Carlill is project and event coordinator at The Council for Learning Outside the Classroom, the national charity that supports schools to embed learning beyond the classroom within a school.
Their programmes build teacher knowledge and understanding of the value and impact that learning outside the school has on students, the school and their own teaching. You can find out more about the opportunities available for schools at www.lotc.org.uk.
Emily Carlill from the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom explains how teachers can use their local area and the winter season to create effective and memorable experiences.
This is a time of year full of excitement, enthusiasm, perhaps a little bit of apprehension, but mainly of possibilities, shiny stationery and new starts. Trends for school trips are on the up - and there’s lots of help out there to make yours a success, says Emily Carlill from CLOtC.
