This course is aimed at anyone new or developing their outdoor skills, or those who have knowledge and want further inspiration to develop an all year round outdoor practice.
This is a fantastic opportunity to look at how play and learning outdoors links in with the seasons. We will look at different types of play and learning to support child development. We will introduce basic outdoor and woodland skills, simple tools, identifying risks, hazards and benefits to help you starting to develop your own practice in the natural environment.
Winter can often be a challenging time outdoors but we will explore more ideas to develop your confidence and knowledge working with children outdoors in the elements that the great British weather throws at us.
We will be outside whatever the weather. Waterproofs, stout walking boots/welly boots and warm clothing are advised.
This is the second of four standalone sessions offered throughout the academic year, based on the seasons.
£30 for Ofsted registered South Gloucestershire settings

This course is designed to give you the knowledge to become a Breakthrough mentor; Breakthrough mentoring supports people to develop positive experiences and relationships, enabling them to achieve, grow and develop new skills and to realise their full potential. So what is a mentor? A Breakthrough mentor is someone who works alongside a vulnerable person (mentee) to empower them to become independent and live a fulfilled life. They will work individually with the mentee, using activities that engage and motivate them to gain confidence, self-belief and work towards independence. What type of person are we looking for? Our placements are unique and varied, which requires us to have a diverse group of mentors. You don’t need a set of qualifications, just special qualities that enable you to support your mentee to learn, grow and develop.Essential Information
