WORKSHOP CONTENT & LEARNING OUTCOMES

A practical day exploring the connection between what's visible on the ground (rocks, plants and living things) and what's under the ground.

We'll look at how leaders and instructors can put over the science bits in a conversational and not-too-technical approach.

Also, because we will be moving on sometimes steep and broken ground, we'll look at safeguarding issues as they present themselves on our journey.

Outcomes:

A deeper appreciation and understanding of the absolute relationship amongst rocks, minerals, water, nutrients and living matter. 

Developed confidence in talking about the environment with your clients.

Refreshed appreciation of issues related to safeguarding on steep ground - the unplanned and deliberate use of a rope/sling on difficult ground (with clear reference to the limitations of each MTUK Award)
