Forest School Training
From September 2013 we will be continuing the new modular
format (developed in conjunction with FSTC).
Each module progresses on from
the previous one, thereby allowing students to choose
to achieve the Level 2 Assistant's Award or Level 3 Leader
Certificate. Level 2 students can top up at a later date
when they are ready to progress to the higher levels of
training. The new modular format results in the same
qualification and the same standard of training.
The training will take place over a number of
sequential 2-day training modules, which should be easier for those
who work in schools to get time off for training. In
addition, the coursework requirement is split across the modules
thereby removing the need to compile a single large portfolio at
the end of the training. Each module has a number of
workbooks requiring short written answers to be completed.
This should ensure that students are able to complete their course
whilst they are progressing through the training modules.
The modular course still incorporates
assessment of practical skills as well as the crucial leadership
assessment where we assess students delivering forest school in
their own setting.
We will also be running the original course
which entails a five day training week and a three day
All of our Forest School training courses are
accredited through the Open College Network West Midlands Region
