Level 3 Forest Schools Practitioner Qualification


Little Acorns Forest Schools Ltd run the ITC Awards Level 3 Forest Schools Practitioner qualification.

The course is split down into parts; 4 days on site training, a period of development and delivering pilot Forest Schools programmes to your own client group and a 2.5 day Outdoor First Aid / Paediatric First Aid Course should you require it.  Following this, you will come forward for a 4-day Development Course where you will be formally assessed in your practical abilities and your delivery of Forest Schools sessions using Forest Schools ethos and methods.  Once this is completed you will then have 3 months from the end of the course to complete the portfolio, which is now fully online. On successful completion of this, you will be notified and congratulated and will receive your qualification through the post.  This whole process can take up to 12 months from the initial training course but this is totally dependent on the learner.

Working hours for the course are from 0915 – 1700 daily and the course is run from our site at Longhedge Lane, Burton on Trent DE13 9QR. Cost is £900, which includes the 2.5 day Outdoor First Aid / Paediatric First Aid Course. We are also now offering occasional dates in Eindhoven, Holland (next course will be 27th March to 30th March 2023) so please get in touch for location details or to be informed about future course dates here.

      5 out of 5

      Little Acorns Forest School Level 3 Forest School Training.

      My nerves at arriving at a new place on my own were quickly dissipated as we were welcomed onto site. After the normal health and safety paperwork we made our way out into the woods. The woods were where Dave came into his own; His passion and expertise were obvious to all present, and he had a fun loving demeaner which brought the whole team together, all while maintaining his professional manner. He was always ready to listen and help where people needed it, and I have never known an instructor to go the extra mile like Dave when it comes to the ever-dreaded portfolio. It was such a reassurance to know that any advice and guidance was only an email away when needed. Dave’s military training shone though on the outdoor first aid part of the course meaning that after the HazMed roleplay, I came away completely confident that I could help if god forbid the worst ever happen.
      I have gained many new friends through this training, and we all keep in touch and share our ideas and successes. Forest School training is the first training I have attended in a long time that really delivered and made sense, especially in this iPad fuelled society.
