Each Local Authority in Scotland is asked to nominate a representative or two to join the Scottish Advisory Panel for Outdoor Education. Historically the Panel was made up of the ‘Advisors in Outdoor Education’ but the face of Outdoor Education in Scotland has changed and now the Panel consists of a diverse range of job remits from across different services.
Each Local Authority can select up to two of the most appropriate individuals who can best support and influence the main aims of the Panel. These individuals have a responsibility to disseminate information to others within their LA. Each LA has one vote.

The Scottish Advisory Panel works in partnership with Education Scotland, HSE, and the Adventure Activites Licensing Authority. Each of these organisations is invited to send a representative to Panel meetings.
Various organisations with an interest in the work of the Scottish Advisory Panel can be invited to become Associate Members. Each of these organisations is invited to send a representative to Panel meetings. Associate Members pay the membership fee and have voting rights.
All retiring members who have served on the Scottish Advisory Panel for more than 5 years will be offered an Honorary membership.
