Program overview

The course is delivered as:

1. Two one hour sessions, with teachers encouraged to trial activities between sessions.

2. One 2 hour session as part of a Staff Development Day 

Standards: Engaging Students Outdoors will contribute 2 hours of TIPL addressing 2.1.2, 4.2.2, 6.2.2, 6.3.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
