New Modular Level 3 Training - the Forest School modular training course was created by FSTC. Based on the Forest School principles of small achievable chunks, our course is taught in bite-sized modules and with coursework formatted into manageable portions. Its flexible too - you can explore the concept of Forest School by starting with the basic modules then come back at a later date to develop your skills, knowledge and understanding right up to full qualified Forest School Leader status. 
 
Prices can vary between courses and are listed within each 'Course Flier' document.
