Award winning authors!

Debbie Lambert, Michelle Roberts and Sue Waite, authors of the National Curriculum Outdoors series of books, have been awarded the LOtC Resource Provider Award by the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom.

The award recognises organisations that provide products and services which genuinely assist teachers in delivering meaningful and engaging learning outside the classroom; in this particular case, it recognises the excellence of these books and their potential for bringing about real change in learning.

Sue Waite is a former Associate Professor in Outdoor Learning at Plymouth Institute of Education and now holds honorary posts there and at Jönköping University in Sweden. She led Natural Connections - the UK's largest learning in natural environments demonstration project - and has conducted many, many other research projects on outdoor learning.
