The Outdoor Education Group is a for-purpose organisation seeking to create positive change in the lives of young people through outdoor education.

OVER 39 YEARS OF HISTORY

Founded in 1984, our not-for-profit position enables us to provide outdoor education to schools and community groups across the country while investing in improving the opportunities offered to more young Australians.

The Outdoor Education Group works with schools across the country to bring education outdoors and supports students to become future-ready. We support more than 48,000 students each year in locations across Victoria, New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory, South Australian, Western Australia, Northern Territory and Tasmania.

OUR PURPOSE

To create positive change in the lives of young people through outdoor education.

We support development and growth, bringing education to life in the outdoors.

We believe all young people deserve to be equipped with the skills they need to make a positive impact in society. So we use the natural world to enrich student learning and strengthen essential capabilities such as leadership, resilience, self-belief, communication, social cohesion, and critical and creative thinking.

HOW OUR TEAM BRING OUR PURPOSE TO LIFE

JAYDE COOPER, OUTDOOR EDUCATOR, SA

“It’s about giving those who may not want to be there the best experience possible, creating a doorway into the world they otherwise wouldn’t go into. And for those who have an interest in the outdoors, it’s about giving them the skills and confidence to create their own adventures so they can pass on their passion and experience.”

ALASTAIR MASON, MAINTENANCE COORDINATOR, EILDON-WANGGAI

“By providing an effective corrective, routine, scheduled, preventive, and predictive maintenance program, we ensure both our machinery and facilities run smoothly behind the scenes. We aim for 100% productivity for The Outdoor Education Group’s deliveries.”

JYE MITCHELL, LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT COORDINATOR

“My role supports the development and progression of our field team. With a focus on creating more sustainable professional pathways, my work also supports smoother, more consistent program design and planning by reviewing and assessing integrated, functional leader competency systems.”

KARIN BURROUGHS, NATIONAL RESOURCE AND DESIGN COORDINATOR

“In consideration of the organisation, the client, and the student, I design programs that are a good fit for our internal resourcing and calendar, are within the budget and risk tolerance of the school and are the right content, challenge level and social and emotional opportunities for the students.”
