Forest School Level 1 Award: Introduction to Forest School Principles

Thursday 26 March @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm


Forest School Training at Scotswood Garden

“During a forest schools, learners spend regular time in a woodland environment outdoors leading their own learning through activities such as fire-lighting, using tools to create wooden objects, den making, creative activities and lots of games. Creating a fun, supportive environment and giving children exciting, achievable tasks, enables them to succeed and build confidence and self-esteem, and develop new skills which support their learning back in the classroom.”

We have been running Forest School programmes at Scotswood Garden for 10 years and delivering training for the last 6 years. We are the only Forest School Association recognised provider in Tyne and Wear, and we recently won a national Outdoor Learning Award for our Breeze Forest School programme.

Dates: 26th, 27th March, 2nd April 2020 (learners will need to attend all 3 days)
Time: 9.30am – 5.00pm
Cost: £260
