Assist at Forest School
This qualification is ideal for those who would like a more in depth introductory course or who need more practical and academic experience in order to progress to the Level 3 – Certificate in Leading Forest School course. This course offers plenty of opportunities to develop your own skills at Forest School in preparation for passing those on to others at a later date. Completion of the Level 2 booklet takes place during the course and whilst assisting a Forest School Practitioner (Level 3 Trained) with planning and delivery of Forest School programmes. For this reason you must ensure an established link with a Forest School Practitioner before coming on to the course.
Course duration – 4 days of training, plus assisting with planning and delivery of minimum of 3 Forest Schools Sessions. This is usually a minimum time commitment of 3 x half a day.
(course is completed within six months of start date)
Please note this course enables you to assist at Forest Schools, and does not qualify you to run Forest Schools Sessions.
Course ticket - for all 4 dates.
