The Advanced Certificate in Forest School & Outdoor Learning

Unlike our Forest School Activities Online Training, which centres mainly on ‘how to’s’ with a little bit of the ‘why’... In the Advanced Certificate, we take a deep dive into the models, methods, worldviews and values that underpin teaching and working in nature.


Develop the core knowledge and nature connection skills you need to take groups in your care outdoors safely, competently and confidently.
Whether you’re new or a seasoned practitioner, it will save you countless hours, and let you execute on your ideas with greater confidence and speed.
