Wiltshire Wildlife Trust is a recognised centre for the National Open College Network (NOCN) Forest School Qualifications. Our Forest School courses provide you with the understanding, knowledge and practical skills needed to be a Forest School Leader or support a Forest School Programme.
Our courses will develop your expertise to work with children in an outdoor environment, enabling you to build their social communication and risk management skills, and to provide opportunities for them to thrive and learn about themselves.
By placing emphasis on the journey rather than the outcome and holding regular sessions, Forest School provides emotional time and physical space for child-led learning to come alive. By developing a Forest School Programme of your own, you will help children and young people to develop;
A positive mental attitude, self-motivation and independenceResourcefulness, self-regulation and resiliencePerseverance, self-confidence and communication skills
