Trainees develop new skills as wildlife scheme proves itself a success

Durham Wildlife Trust would like to say a massive congratulations to the Rainton Meadows Forest School Trainees of 2018 who have already learned and achieved so much and are now beginning to put their learning into practice. It has been a delight to work alongside the trainees over the past 10 months and watch them grow in confidence, develop new skills and achieve a greater understanding, both, of the natural environment and holistic child development and learning. We wish them all the best as they complete their training and begin their Forest School journeys.

Forest School provides regular opportunities for children to play and learn in an outdoor environment.  Sessions are delivered through a balance of adult led and child initiated activities to provide challenging and enjoyable experiences across all areas of learning and development.

If you are looking to take on a fresh adventure during 2019 North Yorkshire Forest School Training are running a new NOCN Level 3 Forest Schools course at Rainton Meadows Nature Reserve starting on the 30th April.

Training is a combination of face-to-face days, staggered over a period of months, and independent study.  There are theoretical and practical elements to the course and the face-to-face days include elements of both woodland and classroom sessions.
