Event Details

This training course is essential for anyone wishing to lead Forest School programmes in their own setting. It covers learning theory and practical skills, plus gives participants the confidence and knowledge needed to establish and deliver their own Forest School programmes.

Our Forest School Leader Training is run by experienced leader and trainer, Adrian Goodhand, and accredited by the awarding body QNUK. Our venue is a pioneering environmental education centre within a 55 acre woodland site, where we are passionate about outdoor learning and providing high quality training. The course covers a combination of practical skills (tool use, fire lighting, campfire cooking, knot tying, identifying and using natural materials etc.) and theoretical skills (holistic development, self esteem theory, learning theory, learning through play etc.). The course also covers how to set up a Forest School programme, risk management and sustainable use of woodlands.

​Our Forest School Leader (Level 3) training course is run over a number of months to help participants take on board the course learning, spread the coursework assignment load and reflect on their training. Level 3 trainees receive 11 days of training, split into 4 modules. In addition to the training days, participants will be required to set up their own 6 week pilot Forest School programme and submit a coursework portfolio within 12 months of starting the training. The course is described as 24 days worth of work - 11 days attending the training days and the rest is self directed learning time.

Participants must attend four modules, 11 training days in total between November 2024 and May 2025.
