Is this course right for me?

The Level 3 Forest School Leader course is a specific forest school qualification, and designed for those that would like to set up their own forest school programmes. Training includes both theory and practical learning, a work based assessment and the requirement to complete a portfolio. An established link with a setting or forest school site, and a level 2 qualification (or appropriate experience), plus a DBS certificate is required.
