As a Forest School Leader, you are required to hold a current first aid certificate. In line with HSE (Health and Safety Executive) guidelines, we advise that you hold a First Aid qualification that is appropriate for your usergroup with an outdoor element.
This will either be Forest School First Aid or a general First Aid certificate topped up with an Outdoor First Aid course. Our local provider is Joy of Adventure, who offer a range of excellent First Aid courses all held at the Faculty of Education, Cambridge. First Aid training courses are accredited by ITC First.
