Forest school provides a creative, fun and supportive environment for children to lead their own learning improving their confidence and self esteem, social skills, communication and physical skills knowledge. It also helps children develop an interest, understanding and respect for the natural environment.
This inspiring course will provide you with the skills and knowledge needed to design and run your own Forest School programmes that have the potential to transform the lives of the children you teach. The course is taught using a mixture of practical activities, games, reflection and creative presentations.
We have been running Forest School programmes at Scotswood Garden for 10 years and delivering training for the last 6 years. We are the only Forest School Association recognised provider in Tyne and Wear, and we recently won a national Outdoor Learning Award for our Breeze Forest School programme.
