We spent a great couple of days last week days working with the Prince’s Trust on our new Introduction to Bushcraft for Outdoor Leaders course. The course is spread over two days and is a Level 2 NCFE accreditation. We covered so much during the course, looking in particular at conservation and safety in relation to Bushcraft. Within these broad topics, study elements included comparing bushcraft and survival skills, safe use of cutting tools, building natural shelters, traditional fire lighting techniques, and safe foraging for wild foods.
Thanks to The Ecology Centre for being such wonderful hosts, as always! We would also like to extend a particular mention of thanks for Claire Reid for being a fab assistant instructor.
Watch this space for news of more upcoming dates for this course to be announced soon!
