Professional Development

Orienteering Victoria offers Three levels of Professional Development courses to teachers and education staff. Contact the OV office for availability and fee structure.

  • LEVEL 0 NCAS “Orientation to Orienteering” Accreditation
    This is a 90 – 120min theory and practical course that provides teachers with all the skills and knowledge to set up a comprehensive orienteering program including excursion planning and design.
  • LEVEL 1 NCAS ACCREDITATION ( Sports Specific)
    This comprehensive, practical sports specific accreditation is a one day course ( 8 hours) designed for PE and OE teachers ( with experience of teaching in the outdoors). This course provides teachers with the skills to extend school orienteering programs into the bush and develop effective coaching skills and techniques.

Training is also offered through ACHPER and by request for tertiary level students. Contact the OV office for further advice.

 

Sporting Schools

The Sporting Schools program is a funded sport program provided by the Australian Sports Commission. Funding is available to primary schools in Victoria. Funding is provided directly to schools from the ASC. Schools nominate a sport usually on a term-to-term basis. Orienteering Victoria currently offers orienteering programs within Greater Melbourne and up to 50km from Ballarat.
A standard OV program might include:

  • Mapping of your school
  • Provision of Lessons
  • Professional development for staff
  • Purchasing a schools orienteering kit

All program’s are tailored to your school’s need in discussion with your staff.

More details can be found on the Sporting Schools website or on OV’s Magic Maps (sporting schools program) website.

Incursions and Excursions

Sessions are organised on a needs basis for both Primary and Secondary Schools on school grounds or within local parklands.
The sessions generally run for 2 – 2.5 hours.
The orienteering courses and maps are prepared by Orienteering Victoria
using large parkland areas (eg. Parks Victoria parks and council managed parkland).
Our staff then instruct and coordinate the session.

More advanced orienteering sessions in a bushland setting can be arranged for secondary students.
