Level 3 Outdoor Education

13OED
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms S. Reynolds

In this course, students will apply classroom-based learning activities into an outdoor environment. There will be several trips and camps that are part of the course. Topics covered will be risk management, leadership, lifelong wellbeing and a research assignment. The contexts that we will be using to learn about these topics will be a leadership camp where the students will be leading junior students in outdoor activities. A journey with an overnight camp around Auckland linking in with risk management will be included.

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).




Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

Donation towards the overnight camps will be approximately $200.
