Forest School Training

The Forest School approach is often associated with taking the same group of children to a habitat (usually a woodland environment, but this is no longer compulsory) to have an outdoor learning experience over a period of six weeks.

Within this time period children may experience a range of sensorial, emotional, social and learning/curriculum based experiences. These experiences are often linked to bushcraft skills and sustainable habitat management. They may explore and identify the local habitat and learn to use tools and tie a range of knots, hitches and lashing to help construct a  shelter, explore traditional crafts linked to fire, carving and use of natural materials.

Your training on Forest School will guide you through the theory behind these aspects and their practical application.
