National Guidance has been written and published by the Outdoor Education Advisers Panel (OEAP).
The Outdoor Education Advisers’ Panel supports Local Authorities, schools and Academy Groups in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It provides a forum for sharing and developing good practice in Off Site Visits, Outdoor Learning and Learning Outside the Classroom.
The OEAP delivers training courses that support this guidance. Please see the OEAP Training Site for a range of local courses that ensure your staff are competent and suitably trained.
