Accredited FS Leader Training in London (Level 3) JUNE
Based in London, The Hive delivers Accredited Forest School Training that focuses on innovative ways to engage pupils in Forest School, particularly in urban environments where access to outdoor space is constrained.
Our accredited Level 3 Forest School Leader training course is designed to provide trainees with all the skills they’ll need to lead rich and creative Forest School sessions in a safe natural environment. It is designed to meet the needs of teachers, nursery practitioners, youth workers, community facilitators, artists, counsellors, and parents – anyone keen to lead Forest School sessions in their own – or others - setting on a regular basis.
The course is structured around five key areas of learning, covering the pedagogy that underpins the Forest School ethos and principles, the understanding of child-centered learning in nature, the planning and preparation that are key to successful sessions, the broad range of practical skills supporting Forest School and the knowledge that allows the sustainable use of woodlands and natural materials for learning.
This course is accredited through National Awarding Organisation AIM Qualifications & Assessment Group. AIM are approved by and meet the requirements of the Forest School Association. Through AIM, our Curriculum is endorsed by the FSA.
