It’s Conference Season!
Posted in News
As the 2018 season comes to a close and we start planning next year many of us in the senior management teams are taking part in conferences and training events.
Denea has been championing the outdoor learning cause, on behalf of the British Activity Providers Association (and Allnatt), at the 2018 UK Outdoor Learning Sector conference in Staffordshire.
The conference is being hailed as “a great success for the sector and a demonstration of the value in collaborative working” by the Institute for Outdoor Learning. Over three days there were more than 300 people attending 67 sessions across 4 themes delivered by 75 presenters. There were 14 exhibitors, 12 keynote speakers and 6616 votes cast for the 22 finalists for 9 Outdoor Learning Awards.
The Institute for Outdoor Learning co-ordinated the conference, working closely with The Association of Head’s of Outdoor Education Centres and the British Activity Providers Association; and supported by the Outdoor Education Advisors Panel they had representation from Home Nations government agencies, National Governing Bodies, professional institutes, sector representative bodies, charities and industry.
We are already looking forward to next years event.
