To undertake the Level 3 course you are required to have the following:

A current DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check 
Appropriate 1st Aid training (a minimum of 16 hour, outdoor 1st aid appropriate for the age group you are working with) - this is needed before you start your introductory Forest School programme.  
Access to a group (this can be any age group) and a natural space to run the introductory Forest School programme at. This happens after the training modules so there is time during the course to make arrangements.
