One of the missions of the Institute for Outdoor Learning is to recognise and improve the quality of Outdoor Learning in the UK. We do this by working in collaboration and sometimes partnership with many organisations involved in the professional development of our members and the provision of Outdoor Learning.
IOL Guidance and Good Practice
IOL offers guidance and makes Good Practice Statements where it is deemed beneficial to the sector as a whole, something that is supported by and is supportive of, our members and where no other relevant guidance exists.
