I really appreciate people getting in touch who would like to be involved with wildwood-teamwhat we do. Some people get in touch because they would like to gain more experience in outdoor play and learning, some because they are keen to develop their skills and some because they simply love to get out and about and work with groups! Whatever your reason, why not contact Mhairi Walker (lead trainer and project facilitator). You can also download our Volunteer application form and volunteer activity assistant role description.

    I am a Landscape Architect and University tutor, considering a career change.

    I currently work as a part-time tutor at the University of Sheffield, where I have experience assisting and running workshops, including tree identification. Last year I was lucky to have a great experience volunteering at a summer school in Taiwan, which including assisting primary school age children with science activities, cooking and homework, as well as assisting in english lessons for high school children. I am looking to gain more experience working with children outdoors to combine both my interests in landscape, outdoors and nature with education.

    How are forest schools accountable to Ofsted and other types of accountability systems in schools? How do they meet accountability and curriculum aims?

    Thank you.
