After initial concern as to how I would fit the coursework into my busy life I am so glad I did this course. I absolutely loved it! Shane the tutor was incredibly knowledgeable, clearly passionate, and gave clear constructive feedback where needed. I am now running sessions in school and thoroughly enjoying them alongside the children!

Fantastic course, great experiences, I met some amazing new Forest School Leaders. A massive thank you to Shane for making everything feel achievable. I couldn't have asked for a more inspiring course. I would highly recommend to anyone wishing to train to teach in the great outdoors!

This really is a inspirational course not to miss! I loved every minute, from group learning in a wooden hut to practical outdoor sessions, teaching us how to plan and deliver a forest school session to inspire our children, not forgetting the fab skills days filled with building a shelter, cooking on a campfire, knots and traditional crafts. With continued support throughout my long journey and coursework (I completed the assistant level 2 but then was encouraged to complete level 3) and the interruption of Covid 19. Learning alongside two of the most amazing and knowledgeable Forest School Trainers has given me the confidence, drive and passion to become a Forest School Leader.😊🌲

Shane and Mark at Inspired FS Training have been incredibly supportive in helping me complete my Level 3 practitioner qualification, especially during the tricky COVID period. Throughout sessions Shane passed on to us a passion for the outdoors and childrens place in it. Shane professionally teaches traditional Forest School practice (fire lighting, tool use), as well as instilling an appreciation for the the smaller things that hurried life often passes us and children by. All set in the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside? What more could you want! Thank you for changing my perception of education and life!

Shane and Mark made every part of this course enjoyable despite the weather being against us in the majority of the sessions (ever tried lighting an open fire in a flooded woodland?!) and it ending during a global pandemic. Every participant on the course grew in confidence and felt completely supported as we navigated the practical skills and the theory side of forest school. I can’t recommend Inspired Forest School Training highly enough.

Absolutely faultless. Shane is a fantastic teacher that really does inspire you to commit to best possible forest school practise. The sessions were really practical and not at all classroom based which builds your confidence from the start. The course was well organised and the support for assignments was brilliant. I can't recommend this course enough. Thank you to Shane and Mark. Really feels like a privilege to have trained with you.
