Do you know someone who has made and positive and significant impact on the lives of children and young people through their work, research, writing or campaigning for learning outside the classroom (LOtC)? Then this is your chance to nominate them for a national LOtC Award!
This week sees the launch of the fifth annual awards of the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom (CLOtC). The Awards for Outstanding Contribution to LOtC will recognise individuals and teams of people whose commitment to LOtC ensures more young people experience the world beyond the classroom in order to improve their attainment and personal development.
Differing from the LOtC Awards in previous years, CLOtC is keen to give recognition to the UK’s teachers, campaigners, MPs, local authority staff, lecturers, researchers and others who have worked tirelessly to promote and champion LOtC in all its guises.
CLOtC wants you to nominate a team, colleague, celebrity or friend who you believe has done outstanding work in the field of learning outside the classroom. Anyone is eligible for a nomination, as long as their work in LOtC has had a positive impact on an individual child, group of children, or for children and young people as a whole.
To read the guidance and criteria and make your nomination for 2012, please visit www.lotc.org.uk.
Notes to the editor:
The Council for Learning Outside the Classroom (CLOtC) is the national charity which champions learning outside the classroom (LOtC) and encourages young people to get out and about because research shows children learn best through real life experiences. We believe that every child should experience the world beyond the classroom as an essential part of learning and development, whatever their age, ability and circumstances.
