The ITC Level 3 Award in Forest School Programme Support (QCF) provides learners with the skills required to run and manage a forest school setting when conducting Forest School outdoor programmes and activities. It is designed to meet the needs of teachers, youth workers, students, childminders and others in providing everything required to set up a Forest School. As well as the practical training, you will be required to complete a portfolio of coursework which you will have up to a year to complete.
Our staff are friendly and experienced forest school leaders and are always on hand to help. We provide coursework support days and email/telephone support as and when you should need it to help you complete your coursework.
Forest School First Aid and Paediatric First aid is compulsory even if you hold a First Aid qualification.
Forest School First Aid training covers practical skills needed by those who work with children, providing the confidence and knowledge to deal with comprehensive life-saving first aid emergencies in the outdoor environment, including first aid for adult helpers. The complementary Paediatric first aid qualification satisfies Early Years Foundation Stage practice guidance and statutory guidelines.
Both First Aid qualifications are now available with The Outdoors Group at an additional cost, however you can complete with an alternative provider should you wish to.
