Learning Outside the Classroom

The Council for Learning Outside the Classroom is a national charity existing to promote and champion learning outside the classroom so all children and young people can benefit from increased opportunities for high quality and varied educational experiences. The Council took over responsibility for the Learning Outside the Classroom Manifesto in April 2009. The Learning Outside the Classroom Council overseas the quality badge scheme.

Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge  
The LOtC quality badge was devised to achieve two of the Manifesto’s high level aims:

Aim 3: We will offer learning experiences of agreed high quality;

Aim 5: We will better enable schools, local authorities and other key organizations to manage visits safely and efficiently. 
Many BIAZA members are signed up to this scheme.
