In perfect timing in these strangest of times, the first 9 of a series of 15 Teacher Toolkit resources have been created to increase teacher confidence in taking students into the outdoors across a variety of curriculum focus areas.

Through the DET’s Strategic Partnership Program funding (SPP), Outdoors Victoria as lead organisation in partnership with ACHPER Victoria (Australian Council Health Physical Education and Recreation), EEV (Environment Education Victoria),  GTAV (Geography Teachers Association of Victoria) and Parks Victoria have created this series of Teacher Toolkit resources.

Across a three calendar year program (2018, 2019 and 2020) a total of 15 Teacher Toolkit Documents will be delivered. These documents have been developed through extensive consultation with the broader schooling community and external teacher organisations over several years including but not limited to ALEA (Australian Literacy Educators Network), HTAV (History Teachers Association of Victoria) and 100+ Surveyed teachers to ensure developmentally and culturally sensitive activities have been used. This initial round of Teacher Toolkits are tailored towards Primary School educators but with simple modifications can be used throughout Foundation – Year 10.
