“Hi,

I’m Alex and I deal with the content of this website and I can offer you guidance and advice in using our resources. I also run various workshops and qualifications to enable you to use our resources safely, confidently and to get like-minded people together to enjoy and learn from the outdoors.
I have always had a passion for both the outdoors and education and it is my dream to be able to share my knowledge, experience and enthusiasm with others to enable them to enjoy the benefits too.

In my vast experience, I have seen the huge benefits of using the outdoors as a vehicle to learning and believe that relating concepts to real life practical situations can not only enlighten minds, but also bring huge benefits to emotional intelligence and wellbeing.

I hope you enjoy using these resources in the outdoors as much as I do. Please get in touch if you require any further guidance or assistance in outdoor learning, and I hope to see you on one of our workshops or courses soon!”

“Hi,

I’m Thom and I’d like to welcome you to Outdoor Learning Made Easy. We are a new business and are really excited about engaging with our customers. I have always had a strong connection with the outdoors through my explorations around the globe, including mountaineering in the UK and parts of Europe.

When I researched the market with Alex and we looked at launching Outdoor Learning Made Easy, it was clear that no one had solved the issue of how to provide a clear and concise set of resources, linked to the curriculum, that were flexible enough to be used in a variety of settings and locations, which still allowed a degree of creativity and flexibility by the user. We believe that we have solved this issue and have created a vast website of resources which give users the confidence and ability to take learning outdoors, with low time, cost and effort. Our wealth of experience and knowledge as outdoor experts in a variety of fields, have allowed us to provide a flexible solution to suit your needs and constraints, which encompasses a variety of approaches in outdoor learning. Our resources cover all National Curriculum objectives for all primary ages in a cross curricular and creative approach.  Subscribe today and see how we can help you.

Outdoor Learning Made Easy is easy to use, easy to implement and offers you the chance to expand you knowledge in your establishment through a seamless online process to achieve excellence in outdoor learning, whilst saving valuable time and effort.

I believe that educating and facilitating others about the enjoyment and importance of the outdoors is a vital factor for future generations to help our environment. I look forward to working with you and hearing from you soon.”
