The Level 1 training takes place over two days. This is a non-residential course.

This course is accredited by Open College Network West Midlands.

This qualification is designed to enable learners to develop an understanding of the principles and ethos of Forest School. It will prepare learners for further study and employment in the outdoors and to progress on to the level 2 Award for Forest School Assistants.
