Forest Schools

Wild Learning provides Forest School Training at Level 3 and Level 2. We also provide Refresher Training. Our Forest School Training is accredited through the National Open College Network. We are a member of the National Forest School Trainers Network so we can ensure the ongoing provision of high-quality training.

What is Forest School?

Forest School is a long-term, continuous opportunity for children to engage with the local environment guided by a qualified and enthusiastic leader.

Forest School programmes are usually a minimum of a 10-week block, with children making regular (weekly or fortnightly) visits to the same outdoor site.  Along with a qualified leader, they can explore the site, learn about nature, use natural materials to make things, use hand tools and have campfires.

Each Forest School project is as individual as the people participating – the children, the leader and helpers. It encourages individual learning using small, achievable steps to raise confidence and the willingness to ‘have a go’ at new challenges.
