Forest School Support Award Level 2

*Please note, there are multiple start dates for this course running throughout the academic year. Please apply using the button below to sign up for the next available cohort.

The Level 2 Award in Forest School Support is suitable if you wish to take an active role and support sessions led by a Level 3 trained practitioner.

You will take part in practical sessions giving you the opportunity to gain, practice and demonstrate your practical skills in things like fire lighting, knot tying and den building.

Sessions will be taking place on Friday morning throughout the year allowing you to pick and choose as required although you will be expected to attend at least two practical sessions and one assessment session.

Practical sessions are supplemented with online lessons, activities and reading based on woodland environment and management, the role of play, maximising learning at forest school and how to successfully facilitate this.

You will be expected to be working, or volunteering, at forest school sessions alongside a Level 3 trained practitioner. You will be expected to demonstrate your understanding of session planning and delivery.

When I joined South Devon College I intended to complete two qualifications Level 2 Fitness Instructor and Level 3 Personal Trainer. I ended up leaving with eight! Including indoor cycling, circuits, chair based exercise and many more. I also won Fitness Instructor of the Year at the annual award ceremony - which was a HUGE achievement for me. I joined to change my life, my career and also came out with an amazing award for my hard work. I went straight into teaching as soon as I qualified with my Level 2, I worked as a fitness instructor teaching indoor cycling first off and this soon escalated into aqua, and many other types of classes, I was covering classes regularly as well as taking my own weekly classes. As soon as I was a qualified personal trainer (PT) I started offering that as well. I am now a well established Instructor and PT with regular classes and clients. I cannot explain how much doing these qualifications has changed my career, changed my world and I absolutely love what I do! I will always be especially grateful to Gary Stephens - Gary was my main tutor and a massive support to me, alongside the fantastic support of Simon Holden, Lynn Stephens and Niall Thompson, I couldn't have done it without any of you!   Karyn Woodhall-Cooper
