Learning outside the classroom changes lives…
The Council for Learning Outside the Classroom is the national voice for learning outside the classroom. We believe that every young person (0-19yrs) should experience the world beyond the classroom as an essential part of learning and personal development, whatever their age, ability or circumstances. Read more about us.
Whether you are an education practitioner, headteacher, governor or organisation that provides LOtC experiences, this website offers a large range of resources developed with the support of many experts in the field learning outside the classroom. The site is designed to support anyone working with young people aged 0–19 provide high-quality educational experiences.
In response to feedback from customers, we have produced an expanded range of LOtC activity packs for the Early Years Foundation Stage. In addition to the original 2 packs for communication, language and literacy and understanding the world and maths, we have added a further 4 packs, one for each area of the EYFS framework. So now you can access even more engaging ideas for learning outside the classroom.
The resource packs focus on activities in the school or setting grounds and local community, to make them as cost-effective and easy to manage as possible.
We have also produced 3 new packs for teaching history outside the classroom, aimed at Key Stages 1-3.
