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).

Kind words...

The best course I have attended in my 7 years of teaching! Yes at first the thought of 6 days out the classroom and assignments to complete was very daunting. What seemed like hard work definitely did not feel like hard work. This was definitely down to the way Chris and Tracy delivered the course. Very informative, approachable and supportive. Jammed packed days with lots of learning was made extremely fun, with the added bonus of making and keeping lots of treasures! Lots of new skills learnt that I can use both in school and at home with my own child. I have been made to feel part of a forest school family and was generally sad when the training came to an end yesterday. Thank you so much for such an amazing experience :) 100% recommend!!
