Welcome to Independent Outdoor

Independent Outdoor is the umbrella organisation for staff delivering outdoor activities at independent schools in the UK.

All of our team work in outdoor activities at independent schools, hold the higher awards from the national governing bodies and have experience of running national training and assessment courses.

Most are able to act as Technical Advisers in one or more areas. We use very small ratios of trainer to delegate in our practical workshops so that the course can be tailored to individual needs. The style is always collaborative - professionals discussing and sharing good practice, alongside clear demonstration of higher level skills by the trainer.

Approved by: Independent Schools Council (ISC), the Department for Education, Health and Safety Executive (HSE), Adventure Activities Licensing Service (AALS), RGS-IBG Expedition Advisory Centre

no fear

If you haven't had a chance to hear these speakers on the subjects of outdoor activities and risk management, then this years conference is a must for you:
