Approximately one-third of the course consists of contact time with other students and the tutors. The remaining hours are for students to undertake self-directed and independent study. During the course you will complete a Practical Workbook that documents your learning on risk assessment, safe tool use, building shelters, how to light and cook safely over a fire and the ecology of woodlands. 

You will be required to write essays on child development and learning and behaviour, as well as conduct research in order to create a 3 year Management Plan and an Environmental Impact Assessment for your proposed Forest School site. You will also be required to create and submit a working Forest School file that includes a Guidebook for Helpers, information for parents and some policy documents. 

 Once all of the above elements are completed you will plan a Forest School programme and run a 6 session programme which will have to be documented in detail.  A member of Green Light’s tutor team will attend one of these 6 sessions to assess your practice and delivery.

 Advice and support for all of the coursework will be given at the appropriate times.

 On successful completion of the coursework, students should receive certification and be qualified as a Forest School Practitioner within 12 months of starting the course. All our courses are accredited by OCN and Green Light Trust is an OCN Recognised Centre.
