What are Outdoor Learning Made Easy’s Core Values?

Outdoor Learning Made Easy has 5 Core Values which are at the heart of everything we do and all of our resources. These Core Values, and their corresponding animal mascots, are as follows: We, and our 1st Mascot Spike the Hedgehog, strive to help improve both emotional intelligence and wellbeing; Our 2nd mascot, Amber the Fox helps to grow your children’s confidence to take and manage risks; Our aim, along with our 3rd mascot Francois the Frog, is to connect more children and adults to their local environment in ways that can be maintained with minimal long-term environmental impacts; Our 4th mascot, Betty the Butterfly, helps to facilitate individuality and originality and enable children to develop innovative skills; Our 5th mascot, Swoop the Owl, will help to gently build their confidence to enable them to develop a positive growth mindset.

More information about our Core Values can be found here.

How long will these challenges take to complete and how long can I access the challenge award scheme?

Each session is quite open in that it could take as quick or long as necessary. A good guide is about half an hour to an hour per session. It is up to you how quickly you work through the challenges. If you do one challenge a day (Monday to Friday), it would take you 4 weeks; If you do one challenge a week it would take you 20 weeks to complete. You can work in any order and as fast or slow as you like as there is no time limit.

Do I have to do the challenges in a set order?

No, you can choose to do them in any order that suits you.

What happens when my child/ students finish all of the challenges?

There are 3 levels. Bronze = 10 challenges complete; silver = 15 challenges complete; gold = all 20 challenges complete. Therefore your child/ students have targets to work to all the way through the scheme. You can download the challenge tracker and keep a check of challenges completed. When your child/ students have completed a level, you can download and print the relevant certificates.

What if my child/ students don’t finish the course within a year?

No problem, they have as long as they need 🙂
