This short course will provide you with an awareness of Forest School principles.
You will gain an insight into the ethos behind Forest School and explore a variety of activities which facilitate play and learning during sessions. You will also learn how to risk assess and manage play activities in a woodland environment.
How will I learn?
This is an online course that can be completed from the comfort of your own home. An element of the course is to 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.
Your assessments will be submitted via our online learning platform and you will receive support and guidance from a personal tutor.
You could progress onto the Level 3 Certificate in Forest School Programme Leadership if you successfully complete this online course.

"I left the army in August 2016 after serving as a front-line medic for 7 years. I decided to visit the college to explore my options as I knew I wanted to pursue a career as a vet. I chose to study an Access to Higher Education course with pathways in Chemistry, Biology and Applied Science- alongside my GCSE maths and English. The staff at the college have been very supportive. Their industry experience and depth of knowledge has been invaluable to my journey. I recently had an interview at the University of Bristol and was offered a place at the School of Veterinary Sciences – one of only 6 in the UK. The college provided me with a stepping stone to my desired career."Rebecca Williams
