Forest School Level 3 Leader course (SUFFOLK)

Who is it for?

The Level 3 qualification is designed for practitioners who have experience working with children/young people or adult groups and who wish to plan, coordinate and deliver forest school programmes. People come from a range of backgrounds into forest school; environmental, scouting, teaching, rangers, early year’s practitioners, ecologists, child minders, artists etc.

The coursework will take at least 12 -18 months to complete.

The Level 3 qualification is equivalent to an A-Level and you should be prepared for a very full and intense experience.

Approximately one-third of the course consists of contact time with other students and the Tutors - around 96 hours of Guided learning. The remaining hours are for students to undertake self-directed and independent study - approximately 84 hours of home study.

Your training journey at GLT:

From the moment our students arrive we are modelling Forest School ethos and possibly one of the most important elements of Forest school; How to hold a space, create a sense of belonging and community, make people feel safe, welcomed and comfortable.

We will be having small group and whole group discussion on topics such as play, holistic development, learning theories etc. Outside we will be building dens, playing game, learning lots of practical skills, cooking, swinging etc. You will experience what Forest School looks like, what it feels like and be held in a space where everyone is offered unconditional positive regard. Each person will be celebrated for their uniqueness in an atmosphere of community kindness and respect.

Assessment methods: You will either gain a pass or have additional work to complete before we pass you.

You will be assessed during your training on your practical skills, such as tool use and fire lighting.
