“Without the rigorous planning the course introduced me to, I feel my Forest School would have drifted about activities offering little continuity and progression for the pupils. I was confident going into the FS programme having completed the Staff Handbook, planned my sessions and risk assessed the site and activities. With that behind me I was left free to ensure each session was safe and that the activities were meeting pupil needs. I have time to be flexible as I was not making it up as I went along.”

“The training was well managed and instilled confidence to participate in all activities. The training has inspired me to implement Forest School within my setting.”

“Unlike other training I had been on this didn’t fade away. … the experiential learning and the stress-free environment in which the learning took place made this a memorable and lasting experience. The way the course is planned took me through the planning and delivery step by step and I gradually built up the knowledge needed... Learning understanding and putting together the handbook made me overcome my low self-confidence and self-doubt in this area. I have learned how to put together a Forest School programme and so I am now able to put forward Forest School in an organised, safe and acceptable way. This gave me the confidence to approach the School Board of Studies and put forward a presentation. They have decided it is a good option and intend to take it on board.”

"I absolutely loved the course, excellent facilitation. I really enjoyed the practical element in Devon and meeting like minded people. The delivery was exceptional, I felt in very safe hands, the delivery of tools / health and safety was fantastic.
I would highly recommend this course.
One of the most useful bits for me was really getting to understand child–led learning and putting it into practice. It was a joy to run the six sessions with our group of children and have the opportunity to observe and evaluate in depth."
