Learning involving EOTC starts when teachers work with students to identify their learning needs and aspirations, and design programmes with inside and outside the classroom experiences that meet these needs.

Learning outside the classroom is based in the most appropriate place to meet the learning needs of students – school grounds, local environment and community, or places further afield.

Learning from outside the classroom experiences continues inside the four walls of the classroom.

Reflection by teachers and students on the EOTC experience makes connections and shapes what comes next.
