Back to Wilderness is a high quality Bushcraft, Survival and Wilderness educational centre of excellence in the heart of East Anglia. We provide a conduit for all ages & abilities to reconnect with nature in a safe, topical, fun & memorable way, all while learning serious survival skills!
Back to Wilderness holds the Learning outside the classroom (LOtC) Quality Badge, which is a national benchmark that accredits providers of learning outside the classroom offering good quality educational experiences and managing risk effectively. The Outdoor Education Advisers’ Panel has endorsed the award and ask that their Local Authority members request that teachers look for the LOtC Quality Badge, when planning educational visits.
Research shows that children learn best through real world experiences. Our activities are designed to help develop self-confidence, problem solving, self-reliance, adaptability & team work, all “real life skills” experienced through interaction & engagement outside of the classroom setting.
LOtC is most successful when it is an integral element of long-term curriculum planning and closely linked to classroom activities. When planned and implemented well, LOtC contributes significantly to the raising of standards and improvements to pupils' personal, social and emotional development.
LOtC is effective in delivering learning outcomes across all areas of the curriculum including literacy, numeracy, science, history, geography and IT and has the most impact when opportunities to learn outside the classroom are frequent, continuous and progressive.
