This 5 day course is designed for individuals who wish to assist a Level 3 Forest School Leader at Forest School.
Friday 15th - Sunday 17th March 2019
Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th April 2019
This course comprises five days of training led by experienced Forest School tutors and Practitioners, usually conducted over one weekend, and another long weekend. In addition there is approximately 28 hours of self-guided study over a three month period. Evidence of your learning is assessed through the completion of the Level 2 Forest School workbook.
During the course you will take part in a range of activities including knot tying, shelter-building, whittling, outdoor games and story-telling and explore how they can be shared with children and young people. You will consider the environment, the flora and fauna, and how we use natural resources to enhance children’s learning. You will describe how teaching outside in the woodland differs from formal education and will record the impact of Forest School experiences on emotional and cognitive development.
Please note that in order to gain an insight into the role of the Forest School Assistant you are required to assist in the planning and delivery of at least 3 Forest School sessions led by a qualified (Level 3) Forest School leader.
