Survey of Outdoor Educators Training needs
The Department of Education has released an updated Duty of Care Policy and Outdoor Recreation Activity Guidelines. A requirement of the Policy is the training and qualification of those teaching outdoor activities. Outdoors WA is seeking information to aid us in identifying the training gaps and needs of current outdoor education teachers to ensure that the sector is able to respond to these professional development requirements.
