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 taster days to introduce the principles of Forest School 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 in a Primary School, then you may be eligible to apply for a subsidy to help develop skills or improve your outdoor space. The Creating a Forest for Learning project is designed to help schools improve their provision. Please contact us for more information.
