The Level 2 Award is an assistant level award to support a Forest School Practitioner.

The Level 2 Award is an excellent way to build a foundation of skills which will support you in becoming an effective Forest School Assistant and enable you to run inspiring outdoor play and learning sessions. Some train at this level initially and then access further training to achieve their Level 3 Forest School Practitioner Award.

5% discount available for bookings made before the 30th December 2016 on our next Level 2 course (April 2016)

The Level 2 Forest School Award consists of 3 units which are assessed through a practical assessment day and also through the completion of a workbook of written evidence. The training and assessment is completed during 4 intensive training days (9am-5pm) in the woods.

Candidates are required to assist and observe three Forest School sessions run by a qualified Level 3 Forest School practitioner (this can be a practitioner who works with a local school, nursery, etc).

  • I learned a lot about Forest School. The tutor was very knowledgeable with time to listen to and answer questions. I enjoyed learning more about fire building and really liked the site we used. I found using tools safely as covered on the course was the most useful, it gave me confidence to try new things. I would recommend this course.

  • Everything about the course was good. The tutor’s knowledge was great, she was very friendly and approachable and I never felt ‘silly’ if I did not understand anything and had to ask for help. I found the training gave me lots of practical experience, I would recommend it to anyone wanting to learn more about Forest School.

  • I found learning new ideas from the course and using the tools to make new items most useful. I have already mentioned this course to other colleagues and I already want to book on the Level 3 Forest School Practitioner Award. Thank you for a fun and enjoyable experience.
