Introducing Orienteering (IntrO)
August 30, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm£15
An Introduction to Orienteering course aimed towards teachers and educators who work in a school or outdoor centre. A tool kit of activities and initiatives will be taught.
While sometimes taught as one full day, this course is split into two half days, one on August 30 and the other September 6.
All participants are given a resource folder upon completion of the course.
Teachers, Outdoor Centre instructors, Scout leaders etc.
Introduction to the basic skills of orienteering through indoor and outdoor activities, and how to bring a variety of subjects to life through the medium of orienteering.
No prior knowledge of orienteering is required, but you are expected to have a basic understanding of how young people learn.
Courses are often arranged in response to local demand.
On this day course you will learn how to introduce the basic skills of orienteering through indoor and outdoor activities, and how to bring a variety of subjects to life through the medium of orienteering. As well as offering the incentive for significant physical activity, orienteering offers links with many areas of the curriculum which are of genuine interest to young people:
- Environmental awareness
- Spatial awareness
- Mathematical calculations
- Language skills – learning new languages and developing existing communication skills
- Team work
- Problem solving
- Independence and self confidence
We can also provide an extended (2-day) course in which you will also learn how to take the orienteering beyond the confines of school or centre grounds. We pride ourselves on adjusting the scope to meet the needs of attendees.
Courses are taught by our qualified, experienced and enthusiastic tutors, at various locations throughout Scotland, often on “in-service” days. Although we schedule some dates well in advance, we’re always happy to add more! Please e-mail Denise Martin – firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like a course near you.
