    The level 3 course represents the industry standard for those that wish to lead their own forest school sessions. We have developed this course together with  Kindling Play and Training.

    Lily of Kindling and Harriet of Scotswood Garden have used their many years of experience in delivering Forest School and Forest School training programmes to develop a new format for the NOCN Level 3 (RQF) course that excites and inspires participants, whilst providing all the theory, skills and knowledge necessary to set up and lead a Forest School programme. The course guides learners through an enjoyable, supportive learning process with clear, easy to understand teaching materials. The course is taught inside and outside, through a mixture of games, practical activities, reflection and creative presentations.

    Learners are assessed in their learning through the submission of 20 bite sized assessment tasks, completed throughout the course. Some tasks will be completed during the training and some will be written up in between  the taught sessions. Participants on the course will need to plan and deliver 6 Forest School sessions with the same group of children.

    This Forest School Level 3 course is aimed at individuals who have a minimum Level 2 qualification in Youth Work, Child Care, Teaching, or relevant experience in working with children.
