Woodcraft Folk centre achieves recognition for high quality educational visits

Youth organisation Woodcraft Folk’s residential centre, Biblins Youth Campsite in has achieved national recognition for its educational visits and has been awarded the Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) Quality Badge.

The LOtC Quality Badge is the only scheme that recognises quality of learning and effectiveness of risk

Mike Lawrence, Biblins Centre Manager said:

“Being awarded the LOtC Quality Badge is a fantastic achievement for all the staff here as it shows that we offer young people high quality learning experiences, bringing learning to life and helping them to achieve their potential. We’re thrilled to get official recognition for our efforts, and we look forward to welcoming even more children and young people to our residential centre.”

Dr Anne Hunt, Chief Executive of CLOtC said:

“Educational visits are among the most memorable experiences in a child’s school life. The LOtC Quality Badge offers teachers the reassurance that the venue is providing high quality educational experiences and have the appropriate risk management structures in place, meaning less paperwork for schools and peace of mind for teachers. I congratulate [insert venue/organisation] on being awarded the LOtC Quality Badge.”

Held by some of the leading providers of educational visits, the LOtC Quality Badge is endorsed by the
