Level 2 Outdoor Education
Teacher in Charge: Mr D. Smith
In this course, students will apply classroom-based learning activities into an outdoor environment. They will gain an appreciation for the outdoors while participating in a range of outdoor activities. The activities will include tramping, camping, navigation, surfing and mountain biking. The focus will be developing their own skills in these activities as well as learning about risk management and leadership.
This course can lead on to certificates, diplomas and degrees in sport, recreation, physical education, outdoor education and sustainability. The purpose and design of this course is to give students an opportunity to learn in, through and about a variety of outdoor activities. Some potential career pathways could be in adventure tourism, secondary and tertiary teaching, outdoor education centres, working as a fitness instructor or as a personal trainer in centres or for corporate groups, environmental and conservation groups (including Department of Conservation and others).
