Outdoor education – how to find out about your own responsibilities

A “quick start” guide to help you get underway

OEAP National Guidance (NG) is the go-to resource for outdoor education and learning outside the classroom expertise. And the good news is that it’s available to all – free of charge.

The Outdoor Education Advisers’ Panel (OEAP) is the professional association for outdoor education advisers and educational visits advisers that has produced the Guidance – and is responsible for keeping it up-to-date in the face of ever-changing and often fast moving circumstances.

Required information will vary depending on whether they are a teacher, parent, governor, local authority officer and so on.
