Hosted and delivered by our recognised and approved centre, Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, we are proud to invite you to our free Forest Schools Taster Event.

This event will: 

  • Introduce you to the benefits of becoming a Forest School Leader for your educational establishment.
  • Enable you to learn about the innovative ways it can be used to engage and benefit learners/participants by taking part in activities that demonstrate the breadth of the qualifications and its benefits.

The day will also include a number of typical Forest School activities and skills in which you can get involved and take part in, including; basic fire lighting, safe knife handling and outdoor games.

Our suite of Forest School qualifications provides the knowledge, understanding and skills needed for learners to take part in Forest School Activities.

These qualifications provide a platform of progression to higher levels of study in the same subject area. The Level 3 Certificate for Forest School Leaders will also prepare learners for employment as a Forest School Leader.

Participants on the day must be appropriately dressed for the weather conditions. Sturdy closed toe footwear will be required as well as suitable outdoor clothing and a rain coat. Please bring a packed lunch with you and enjoy a fun filled day with Forest Schools free taster session on Thursday 11th June 2020!
