Forest School training
Our Forest School training courses are underpinned by the 6 key principles of Forest School as outlined by the Forest School Association. These form the basis for how we approach teaching and learning. We know that Forest School is holistic, child-led learning in a natural setting and also that it offers individuals the opportunity to improve social and emotional skills. In addition, there is a focus on practical bushcraft skills for example using tools and fire. Our courses will train you in all these areas so you can approach Forest School with confidence.
