ITC Level 3 Certificate for Forest School Leaders


Get Out More is running a Forest School Level 3 Certificate for Forest School Leaders course, based in Keighley, West Yorkshire across 2 weeks in June and October 2024.


ITC Level 3 Forest school Practitioners Award is an opportunity to explore different approaches to using the outdoor environment in a forest school setting. This qualification is for those who wish to coordinate, manage and lead quality forest school sessions with children, young people or adults.

Learners investigate how to design and run a successful forest school programme and look at how to approach and apply it safely and effectively. The Level 3 forest school training explores the Forest School Association’s Forest School principles at a higher level, developing learners’ understanding of the natural environment, risk assessment, child development and nature-based learning.

This forest school Level 3 course is aimed at individuals who have a minimum Level 2 qualification in related subject or relevant experience in working with children.

This course will be delivered in 2 parts:
10-14 June 2024
21-25 October 2024
The course is planned to be delivered at Cliffe Castle Park in Keighley, subject to a lease arrangement. There is a possibility that the course may use alternative venues in Bradford district, which will be confirmed as soon as possible.


A limited number of places are available for those who wish to undertake the Level 2 Award for Forest School Assistants.  This will involve undertaking the first week of the course in June  only, and completing a reduced number of assignments.
