Who is this for? This qualification is an introduction to Forest School and as such does not equip you to run Forest School. It gives you an idea of the principles and practice but does not equip you to lead a group. People who attend this are generally volunteer helpers, managers who don’t want to practise but need to know what the principles and elements of practise entail, and people who wish to dip their toes in before committing to becoming recognised leaders. As such, it is a short course.

Pre-Requisites: This qualification is available to those over 14 years. Learners should be at least a level 1 numeracy and literacy or equivalent

Progression route: Learners may progress onto the following qualifications:

  • QNUK Level 2 Award for Forest School Assistants (RQF)
  • QNUK Level 3 Award in Forest School First Aid (RQF)
  • QNUK Level 3 Certificate for Forest School Leaders (RQF)
