Training and Skills Development

training-and-skillsWe can tailor training to specific needs from a few hours upwards. This could be specific environmental education training such as mini beast safaris through to den building and simple tree, woodland or other wildlife habitat management.

If you are ready to take the step into delivering Forest School, please visit our Level 3 Certificate in Forest School Programme Leadership page for the latest information regarding training dates and locations. Most of our Forest School training takes place at venues in Staffordshire and Derbyshire.

Alternatively, we can deliver specific Forest School awareness and taster sessions for teachers, assistants or nursery carers. This will help guide the decision on whether to pursue Forest School training.

We also offer bespoke Forest School taster days to colleges and universities with learners following early years or teacher training courses.

If you have Forest School trained staff but would appreciate that little bit of support in delivering elements of a programme such as fire or tools, then we are able to design skills workshops to suit your needs.

If you’re working in the National Forest then you might be interested in these woodland craft based courses to increase your knowledge. As part of a project funded by Ernest Cook Trust, The National Forest and South Derbyshire Environmental Education Project, we are helping to provide a number of half and full day courses at Rosliston Forestry Centre from autumn 2016 through to spring 2017.

The subjects are varied from basic tool skills, whittling and weaving, through to making a miniature roundhouse to use in history lessons or jewellery from natural materials.
