Level 3 Outdoor Education

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr K. Jackways

This course has a strong practical component. Students will train for and perform in a Tough Guy competition, undertake a rock-climbing trip, complete a two night survival exercise, learn about weather patterns, teach junior students Adventure Based Learning and complete the Tongariro Crossing. Students will also learn single rope technique within the context of caving.  Students will also have the opportunity to meet and listen to outdoor education providers and learn about career pathways within the industry.  Please be advised changes may occur to the programme depending on the availability of outside providers and NZQA’s approval to assess. Some trips undertaken in this course may run on a Sunday to minimise the impact on other curriculum areas and maximise the benefits of the outdoor experience.
