Forest School Training

We deliver Forest School training as part of the Cambium Trainer’s Network which is accredited through Agored Cymru (formally OCN Wales) and is nationally recognised.

Our training is high quality and course evaluations and trainee feedback is excellent. Through all the Stages of Learning that we offer, our aim is to support and build confidence in new practitioners through an agreed individualised learning and mentoring programme that facilitates building skills and gaining experience in all aspects of running Accredited Forest School sessions.

The Training Team

All our Forest School trainers have a wealth of experience in delivering Forest School programmes. They are members of a nationwide training network run by Cambium Sustainable which enables them to remain current in their practice. This network provides on-going mandatory training for Forest School trainers as well as opportunities for continuous professional development. This network provides an opportunity to share new practice and be informed of any changes in legislation and best practice in Forest School nationwide.

Our Forest School trainers are qualified to degree level in childhood development and learning. They have a wealth of experience working with children in a range of settings with children aged 0-5 including those with Special Educational Needs and Disability. They have the underpinning knowledge of the values and beliefs of the Forest School approach which enables them to deliver a high-quality provision.

Experiences and practical tasks link to the national curriculum and EYFS and enhance children’s development. Forest schools can help to promote a healthier lifestyle for children.
