New Document: 1b Foundations

We have created a new document, 1b Foundations, to explain the ideas that underpin the rest of the guidance.  1b Foundations takes you step by step through the thinking that will help you to ensure that you have the right leaders doing the right activities with the right young people in the right places at the right time – the key to any successful outdoor learning, off-site visits, and learning outside the classroom.

You can download 1b Foundations here.

Previously we relied upon the radar graph to explain this, but it has become clear that the radar works best in a training or induction setting, where it can be used as an interactive tool to encourage discussion.   The graph on its own can be easily misinterpreted.

You can still find the original radar document on the National Guidance Website.  It is now located in a new section: Training Resources.
