NatureScot Outdoor Learning Evaluation Report

NatureScot’s Learning in Local Greenspace project evaluation report is now available on the NatureScot website, along with a shorter overview report.
The report found that, among other things, that the percentage of teachers taking learning outdoors in their local greenspace regularly rose from 28% to 49%, while teacher confidence in doing so increased from 54% to 85%. Following the project more than a third (37%) felt that their pupils had a good connection to nature, compared to just 19% previously. The percentage of teachers who believed their pupils’ engagement in learning outdoors was good or excellent also increased from 56% to 79%.
Find out more about the project and access resources and inspiration to help you learn in local greenspace on our website. Also, news about the project report via the Outdoor Learning Directory.
