Forest School Assistant Level 2 Training
Weds 4th - Fri 6th March & Thurs 2nd - Fri 3rd April 2020
Times: 9am - 5pm
Tutor: Adrian Goodhand - Metabolous Education CIC/Natural Choice Training Group
ABOUT THE LEVEL 2 COURSE
This course is for people wishing to assist in the delivery of Forest School programmes. Practical skills covered include fire lighting, campfire management, safe use of hand tools, games and activities. Participants will also learn woodland identification skills and about the Forest School approach to risk management and learning.
Our Forest School Assistant Training is run by experienced leader and trainer, Adrian Goodhand, and is accredited by the Open College Network West Midlands (OCNWM). Our venue is a pioneering environmental education centre within a 55 acre woodland site, where we are passionate about outdoor learning and providing high quality training.
Students will need to assist on 3 sessions of Forest School run by a qualified level 3 Forest School Leader and write up their observations and complete some coursework assignments to gain the qualification. This level of training is if you want to assist at Forest School. Level 2 training does not qualify candidates to run Forest School programmes independently - the Forest School Level 3 qualification is required to lead Forest School sessions.
