Event description
Through a combination of practical outdoor learning and indoor teaching, we will explore the benefits for children as child led learners for lifelong skills. This will enable you to deepen your knowledge and understanding of the philosophy and the ethos behind the Forest School approach.

This is a QCF accredited course through Cambium and Agored. Subjects and modules we will cover include:

Supportive Learning, Play and Development in the Outdoors
Forest School Leader
Observation and Evaluation of Outdoor Learning
Sustainable use of Natural Resources
Teaching Outdoor Practical Skills
The course equates to 70 hours of taught time and requires, on average, a further 110 hours of self-study time from the student. Learners must complete a portfolio of work for assessment.

You will need to source and attend an appropriate two day First Aid course to cover you for working outdoors (not included in course cost).
Please bring a packed lunch as lunches will not be provided.

This course is designed for those who would like to develop, set up and deliver Forest School programmes. This will enable leadership of Forest School Programmes linked to child development. 

Entry requirements: All delegates must be over 21, have a relevant Level 2 qualification, have a current DBS check, have an appropriate First Aid qualification and have an established link with a client group and a Forest School site.
