The Natural Connections Demonstration Project, 2012-2016 - Final Report (NECR215)

This is the final report from the Natural Connections Project, a 4 year demonstration project funded by Defra and Historic England and delivered by Plymouth University. It was developed in response to research and insight studies into the barriers and benefits of outdoor learning in schools.
The project, which came to an end in April 2016, has been testing and evaluating new ways of providing local, independent support to schools and teachers to stimulate both the demand from schools for cross-curricular outdoor learning and the supply of training and support networks to build teacher confidence and skills.
