How is the qualification different to a Forest School qualification?

This qualification focusses on the principles and processes which underline and support learning
beyond the classroom wherever it takes place. This qualification will give you the understanding and
tools to help you consider, plan, deliver and evaluate activities to support your curriculum beyond
the classroom, whether this is outdoor maths on the playground, literacy ideas using the school
field, or trips and visits further afield.
Forest School usually takes place in a woodland or other natural environment, taking a child centred
approach to learning about and through the natural environment over a period of time. It sits within
the wider context of outdoor and woodland education. Forest School qualifications are possible at a
number of levels, depending on the role you wish to take.
