Forest School Learning Initiative is delighted to extend the provision of Forest School Leader Training in Bristol to enable more practitioners to lead Forest School Sessions in their settings.

Forest School is a long-term holistic learning process that aims to raise self-awareness and self-esteem in participants. Regular sessions take place in a woodland environment, where the landscape itself adds to the experience of learning. Qualified practitioners, trained in child development, self-esteem and learning theories facilitate sessions to gain personal outcomes for each participant.

Forest School can be applied to all age groups and abilities and can be linked to the National Curriculum and Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).

Forest School is an inspirational process, that offers children and young people opportunities to achieve, develop confidence and self-esteem, through hands on learning experiences in a local woodland environment.

  • Attend 5 core course days
  • Complete assignment work in a portfolio of evidence (approximately 50 hrs of study)
  • Be assessed practically doing a Forest School session in your workplace
