A warm welcome to Forest School Learning Initiative (FSLI)

Based in the Cotswolds, and with an international reach, we are providers of professional, accredited Forest School Leader Training and Development.

Forest School is an inspirational process, offering children and young people opportunities to achieve, developing confidence and self-esteem, through hands on learning experiences in a local woodland environment.

We are the only Forest School training provider whose trainers also provide Forest School sessions to children of all ages and abilities on a weekly basis. This ensures we continue to learn & develop, enabling us to provide you with the very best and up-to-date training courses possible. 


What is Forest School Training?

Forest School is a long term holistic learning process that aims to raise confidence, self-awareness and self-esteem in participants. Regular sessions take place in a woodland or natural environment, where the landscape itself adds to the experience of learning.

Qualified practitioners, trained in child development and learning theories, facilitate sessions tailored to meet individual outcomes for each participant. Forest School training can be applied to all age groups and abilities, and can be linked to the National Curriculum and Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
