Forest School Leader’s Training

About our courses:

We have worked hard for years to produce our most comprehensive and empowering Forest School training programmes. These courses are for those who want to see young people flourish, for those with a real passion for education and especially for learning through first hand experiences outdoors. We are not interested in simply training leaders, we want to support and encourage a real love for learning. Great leaders inspire others and are happy to share who they are and what they have learnt. Our hope for every student is that they will discover that there is more in them than they ever knew. Our objective is to build experienced, confident leaders who are not afraid to try, who are never too old or too knowledgable to learn and who have a passion for seeing people become the best they can be in the great outdoors!
