Forest School Training Overview

Who can train to be a Forest School practitioner? Which training is right for me? Why should I train with Green Light Trust?

Adults, children and young people supported in 2020.


"Discovering Green Light Trust was a lifesaver. Literally. Without the care and non-judgemental support I received, I dread to think what would have happened to me"
