Forest School Leader Training
Thank you for your interest in training with us to become a Forest School Leader. Before making your booking we strongly recommend that you research the forest School philosophy and understand the approach to ensure it fits with your current situation. There are numerous different types of Outdoor Learning of which Forest School is just one. Before making your booking we recommend the following:
Making a visit to an existing Forest School programme & talking to trained Forest School Leaders
Watch the Video below explaining about the ethos.
To undertake the Level 3 course you are required to have the following:
Be at least 21 years old
At least 2 years experience of leading groups &/or a minimum of a level 2 qualification in a relevant topic (education, youth work, playwork, psychology)
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.
