This nationally recognised qualification allows you to lead Forest School sessions.

Participants experience all the practical aspects of Forest School, from bushcraft and woodcraft through to tool work and playful ways of interacting with the woodland, demonstrating what is possible for them to achieve in their own settings.

The course takes place on 30th July – 2nd August and 5th – 8th August.
Please note when returning on the Sunday, check in will be after 4pm.
