Rhondda Cynon Taff Outdoor Learning Wales Network Group

Rydych nawr yn gadael awdurdod CNC – caiff y tudalennau hyn eu diweddaru a’u cynnal gan aelodau grŵp Rhwydwaith Dysgu yn yr Awyr Agored Cymru.  Nid yw CNC yn gyfrifol nag yn rheoli yr
hyn mae grwpiau rhwydwaith yn dewis ei bostio.

You are now leaving the jurisdiction of NRW – these pages are updated and maintained by Outdoor Learning Wales Network group members.  NRW does not control and is not responsible for what network groups choose to post.

The RCT / Merthyr OLW network group formed in 2002 and now has a vibrant dynamic group of people who meet once a term at various locations around the county. It is made up of outdoor learning practitioners from Natural Resources Wales and local authority, as well as other professionals who are happy to give advice and support to any ideas people may have.

In June 2019, the group was relaunched and is focussed on collaboration to raise the standards of Outdoor Learning, in readiness for the New Curriculum. 

There are a group of teachers who attend the meetings who are keen to use the outdoors for learning and some of these have completed Forest School training.

The group has been successful with two applications for OLW/FEI funding including an outdoor classroom at Glyncornell Outdoor Centre which has been successfully rebuilt at Dare Valley Country Park and is available for groups to use.

One successful project the group have delivered in partnership with RCT Youth Offending Team saw  Forest School being used to promote and improve school attendance of vulnerable teenagers, set in the heart of RCT at Llanwonno Forest.

The group would like to encourage new members to join, even just interested in using natural spaces for learning.
