    I have been teaching outdoor adventure in the FE sector for 18 years, i'm a course leader and also have a MA in Outdoor education. I also teach ICT on a PGCE program, but i'm looking at possible opportunities abroad in the private school sectors. However there seems to be little in the way of Outdoor education as a sole position, do you think it would more prudent for me to be concentrating upskilling on the ICT aspects or do you think that i am not looking at the right vacancies for Outdoor education, which is my first love!

    Forest Schools - I think you have to get qualified in running them but they are becoming the 'in' thing in a lot of places now.
    They do tend to be focused on the lower age groups, but I have also worked with Forest School qualified teachers in secondary schools, and also with holiday club-type weeks run by Forest School people (which obviously can pay well!!).

    If you are thinking of opportunities abroad, then you could try asking this on this forum

    Good luck.
