Online Woodland Activity Leader Training

Overview

We have taken our very popular Woodland Activity Leader Training course, and adapted it so you can learn the theory online, then complete the course by attending a 3 day practical part in person.

 

Our experienced instructors will support you as you learn the theory at home in your own time along with 4 online evening session, where you will meet with both the instructors and your fellow learners.  You will receive a pack through the post containing your handbook to work from.  You’ll then complete your qualification by attending a 3 day practical course with us in Findhorn or other location as shown below, to learn the practical parts.

This is a great option if you need more flexibility aorund your learning, or just like to have more time to absorb new information.

 

What to Expect

 

  1. You will be expected to attend  4 online, evening sessions. These will cover the vast majority of the theoretical modules including:
  • Methodologies, benefits, statutory context, legal roles, funding
  • Conservation, access, invasive species
  • Planning a session
  • Leading a session

 

  1. Evening sessions are likely to last between 2-3 hours each and will take place on a set day each week for the duration of the online component.

 

  1. You will be given ‘homework’ in between sessions which will require you to undertake your own research as well as complete the written assessments required by the course.

 

  1. In-person Practical – Due to the inherent health and safety risks entailed in learning skills utilising sharp tools and fire, we are unable to deliver this aspect of our training digitally. Upon completion of the online course, we will run a condensed in-person practical lasting 3 days and this will take place at our stunning base in Findhorn (or other location as shown below). The practical components of the course will include:
  • Fires and Foraging
  • Tools and knots
  • Botany Field test
  • The development and delivery of your own outdoor session
