Introduction to Forest School Principles Award

This short course will provide you with an awareness of Forest School principles. You will gain an insight into the ethos behind Forest School, explore a variety of activities which facilitate play and learning during sessions and learn how to risk assess and manage play activities in a woodland environment.

This is an online course that can be completed from the comfort of your own home. An element of the course will include providing evidence that you have participated in a practical Forest School session. You can complete this by providing photo or video evidence. We offer regular practical Forest School workshops at our Paignton Campus, which you are welcome to attend to support you in gathering your evidence.

Throughout the course you will receive support and guidance from a personal tutor.

Upon successful completion you could progress to the Forest School Programme Leadership Certificate Level 3.
