Invitation to Headteachers, Governors, Managers, Members of your Teaching and Support staff

Hosted and delivered by our recognised and approved centre, Where The Fruit Is, we are proud to invite you to our free Forest Schools Taster Event.
This event will:
  • Give you an understanding of the health and well-being benefits of Forest School for your staff and the young people they work with
  • Demonstrate some of the rich, learning opportunities a Forest School Programme offers, including transferable life skills
  • Be experiential - as we share some of the Forest School 'favourites' - experience the children and adults we work with, return to time and time again
  • Explain the relevance of the three levels of qualifications and choose the ones that are best for you and your setting
  • Explain the differences and valuable relationship between outdoor learning and Forest School
  • Give you a 'flavour' of the training on offer - along with some delicious refreshments!
Our suite of Forest School qualifications provides the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to set up a Forest School site, safely lead a Forest School Programme, and assist a qualified Forest school Leader or volunteer.
  • Level 1 Award in Introduction to Forest School Ethos and Principles
  • Level 2 Award for Forest School Assistants
  • Level 3 Certificate for Forest School Leaders
These qualifications provide a platform of progression to higher levels of study in the same subject area. The Level 3 Certificate in Forest School Programme Leadership will also prepare learners for employment as a Forest School Leader.
