Volunteer Instructor Training
The VOLT Programme has been developed in response to the Residential and Outdoor Learning Service Provision – Moving Forward (2017) document as a training route for young adults who may not previously have considered Outdoor Learning as a career choice.
In line with NI Education Authority’s Moving Forward (2017) document, the vision of the course is:
To equip a new generation of outdoor learning instructors with youth work and outdoor learning skills to support the schools and youth work curricula in Northern Ireland.
The use of outdoor learning or education has been in the DNA of the youth service for many years.
‘Moving Forward’ recognises the distinctive value of outdoor learning and seeks to transform its delivery with a wider range of options including Learning Centres, partnerships, day centres and self-catering learning centres.
