CPD & Further Training
In addition to the Forest School training we are now running a variety of CPD (Continual Professional Development) courses. These courses are open to those who have completed their level 2 and level 3 FS training.
As FSTC is working in partnership with Bishops Wood Centre, Worcester, we have also added in a link at the bottom of this page to the CPD 'short' courses run in their centre.
Advanced Forest School courses
The Advanced Forest School training courses have been developed by FSTC specifically as CPD to progress the range of practical skills of the Forest School Leader (level 3) and FS Assistant (Level 2). The training will enable FS Leaders to develop their practical skills beyond that of their initial training and help develop progressing the learning of the children and young people attending their own FS practice.
These courses are 2-day and accredited through OCN (Open College Network). A non-accredited option is available.
