Level 1 Introduction to Forest School and Outdoor Learning
This Level 1 course is perfect if you want an introduction to both Forest School and Outdoor Learning to help decide which of these teaching methods works best for your groups. We will teach you about how to use a natural space for learning and simple identification of flora and fauna. You will come away with a range of activities to try with your groups and learn a range of practical skills such as shelter building, using tools and cooking on the campfire. Our courses are all held in our beautiful woodland location in Swaffham Bulbeck, a village close to Cambridge.
