12 Outdoor Education 3

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr A. Belson

Course Content

This course involves both theory and practical lessons. The lessons will be a combination of classroom based theory and activities based in an outdoor environment.

Units of work

  • Personal and Social Responsibility - students develop effective interpersonal skills in order to be able to work in a group and realise how these interpersonal skills impact on others. They will use Hellison's model as a basis for demonstrating interpersonal skills.
  • Quality Performance - students develop their performance to a high level in Scuba Diving.
  • Risk Management - students develop their ability to identify risks, hazards and relevant strategies related to the activities they are participating in (Scuba Diving, Mountain Biking, Whitewater Kayaking). They also evaluate these strategies on their return from each trip.
  • Event Planning - students examine the implementation and outcomes related to the activities they are participating in (Mountain Biking, Whitewater Kayaking).
  • Bushcraft - students develop an understanding of the requirements for a safe multi-day tramp in the bush, including clothing, equipment, navigation aids and food. They then work as a group to plan and undertake a three-day tramp.

Pathway

A side effect of the rise of technology is that it’s made skills like communication, leadership, and cultural intelligence more important than ever. Recently, employers have started valuing these things more and the degree is no longer king. Soft skills and emotional intelligence, is not something a machine can replicate.

Students who complete Outdoor Education to Level 3 will develop their key attributes to a high level. This is often what makes them more employable, as the subject has a strong emphasis on attitude, aptitude, ambition, aspiration and attendance.

Year 13 Outdoor Education is university approved, and may lead to tertiary study for those wishing to make a career in areas linked with the outdoors. Possible jobs include Outdoor Instructor or Guide, Teacher, Challenge Course Facilitator, Environmental Educator, Event Co-ordinator, jobs in conservation, in the tourism sector (including business and marketing), and in outdoor equipment retail.
