University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD Lampeter and Carmarthen)
The programme has been developed to meet the needs of practitioners and graduates working in outdoor education; it brings together in depth theoretical study and professional practice to develop a higher level understanding of outdoor education as a distinctively alternative form of learning; central to the course is a belief in outdoor education as a process of experiential and holistic learning that can help individuals to better understand their personal values, relationships with others and the natural world; the course explores outdoor education from a socio-educational perspective and addresses key issues linking individual practice to national and international concerns such as sustainability, the nature of adventure, formalising the informal, professionalism, facilitating experiential learning, relationships with nature and healthy outdoor communities.
Entry requirements for the programmes are dependant on the background of individual applicants and consideration is given to professional and recreational experience, prior educational awards, written and verbal communication skills and career aspirations; applicants are interviewed to be accepted on to the programme.
