First Aid Training for Forest School (& Outdoor Woodland Learning)

As a training organisation, FSTC strongly recommends that the First Aid qualification is:
At least sixteen-hour long

In England, we recommend the 2-day ITC Outdoor Forest School First Aid course. The context for this training course is Forest School and as such the discussion, practice and outdoor scenarios are suited to Forest School situations. The course is taught in a 'Forest School way', using small achievable chunks, repetition and scaffolding. It is very hands-on and includes outdoor role-play scenarios, so you will need to wear suitable outdoor clothing!
ITC First is an awarding body that specialises in First Aid training courses. You can view a list of their forthcoming courses on their website - www.itcfirst.org.uk
