Forest School Qualifications

If you are interested in finding out more about the Forest School ethos, or wondered how to train to become a Forest School Leader yourself, then our not for profit, award winning team will be more than happy to guide you further. We are Inspired Forest School Training.

Train to become a Forest School Leader in a local, working Forest School, mentored by highly skilled practitioners, with the opportunity to complete a large section of the course online at your own pace.

Not ready for the Leader qualification and just want to learn more about the principles that underpin this global style of outdoor learning? Begin your Level 1 today and build on your studies at a later date, not a problem.

There has never been a better time to promote learning outside of the classroom. Let's inspire together!
