Level 2 Outdoor Education
There are no academic prerequisites for Outdoor Education, however, having a good level of fitness and a drive to work hard in testing environments is advantageous.
This course is a full year course that offers a diverse range of outdoor pursuits. We focus our attention on managing ourselves in the outdoors and working together to achieve a common goal for the group. Assessments are both practical and theoretical. Eight Unit Standards (US) are available and one Achievement Standard (AS)
