Forest and Outdoor Learning

Forest and Outdoor Learning works with a range of people over a period of time, introducing responsible risk-taking and setting participants up to achieve. Children and adults are supported in their learning and encouraged to explore the outdoor environment and appreciate nature. Outdoor Learning leaders use learning and teaching strategies, which develop confidence, emotional resilience, independence, language and communication skills and increase levels of physical activity and mental wellbeing.

As a teacher, the benefits of out-door learning were significant for the class not only in learning opportunities but also in the promotion of life skills. I found it so exciting, I decided to become a Forest School level 3 Practitioner.” – John Hughes.

“My primary 5/6 class had five wonderful, varied weeks of Forest Schools. The children learned new skills, enjoyed sharing their different strengths outside the classroom and were very enthusiastic at all times. We used what we had learned in the forest when we got back to the class-room. A super experience for every-one”. – Ruth Ironside
