Bedgebury Bright Sparks- Training

As champions of Forest School’s inspirational approach to learning, and connecting to the natural world, we have made it part of our mission to spread the word. We aim to raise awareness through the provision of training prospective Forest School leaders by providing nationally accredited qualifications.

KHWP are able to offer Ofqual Forest School training at our permanent Forest School site within Bedgebury Pinetum.
Our training is offered one day a week for a number of weeks rather than in an intensive block. Our students have told us they love this approach as it allows them to take on board all the new things they learn each week.

We are hopeful that we will be able to run our Level 3 Forest School training course in September with adjustments for social distancing; enhanced handwashing;  limits on communal cooking etc. 

Realistically we will not be able to make a decision until, at least, the second week of June but we would like an idea of numbers so we can start planning appropriately. We may consider splitting a larger group and running two courses concurrently to ensure social distancing requirements. 

So please let us know if you are interested in attending in September and what restrictions may apply to you. I will keep everyone who responds updated as the situation develops.
