This accredited two-day course is designed to provide trainees with an introduction to the Forest School ethos and learning in the outdoors. It includes basic practical woodland skills, methods of identifying woodland species and an exploration of the importance of play, creativity and child-centered approaches in Forest School activities.
The course aims to build knowledge and confidence and it is open to trainees with little or no experience of working in the outdoors. There are no entry requirements and it is particularly well-suited to schools, nurseries and community settings looking to build the confidence of their Forest School parent, teacher and community volunteers with a short accredited course, delivered in an easy format.
It is a blended course accredited with Open College Network West Mindlands. It includes one day of face-to-face training at our training venue (Stave Hill Ecology Park) and one day of remote learning and portfolio development.
