Definitely the most inspiring course I have attended. Shane is an exceptional course leader and has an extensive knowledge of the natural world and how to inspire children. This course has given me amazing skills to work with the children at my preschool, and also to use my new skills in my Scouting. I cannot wait to attend more CPD with Inspired Forest School Training. Thank you Shane & Mark

Highly recommend! Shane is a fantastic teacher and leader guiding our group through the course and sharing his knowledge with us. The course took place in a few different settings to be able to give us a proper insight to what can be achieved with Forest School. Looking forward to returning for the different workshops in the future.

Loved the practical days , found study quite hard but more probably because of my lacking in computer skills and Shane pointed me in the right direction and I am so pleased that iv now done all the work 😊

This was a brilliant experience for me. The teacher offered so much knowledge and guidance in a friendly and understandable way. I have gained skills and knowledge to take back to my setting and teach the children. The structure of the practical days were great and really hands on and the support base is invaluable to complete assignments. Thank you!!

I really enjoyed the training days they were great fun and very informative, Shane is extremely knowledgeable and taught me a huge range of practical skills and things to make, and really awoke my interest in the outdoors. Putting into practice what I have learned is fantastic, and Shane has been a very helpful guide and mentor. I agree that the coursework is time-consuming and you really need to keep on top of it. Doing this course alongside working full-time does require commitment but it is well worth it. I am excited to see where my Forest School journey now takes me - let the fun begin!!

The L3 Forest School Leader course is suitably thorough covering everything from managing your own forest school setting, learning tool/craft skills to developing your own pedagogy informed by the forest school ethos. Shane and the team are super supportive and I would recommend inspired Forest School Training without hesitation.

Excellent training - thank you. Shane is a very supportive and knowledgeable trainer. I was a bit nervous about some aspects, but Shane always put me at ease, and I grew in confidence over the course of the practical days. The online assignments are well structured with lots of support and guidance. I thoroughly recommend training at Inspired Forest School Training.
