Having appropriate First Aid qualifications is a necessary requirement for those wishing to run Forest School sessions at their own site.
Forest School First Aid covers the practical skills needed by those who work in Forest Schools, providing the confidence and knowledge to comprehensively deal with life-saving emergencies in the outdoor environment, including first aid for adult helpers. The Paediatric First Aid qualification ensures that you have the appropriate adaptations to your First Aid skills for use with children, and satisfies the Early Years Foundation Stage practice guidance and statutory guidelines.
The Outdoors Group is delighted to now offer a 2 day, fully accredited, first aid course that gives you two qualifications:
This is available in conjunction with our Forest School Leader Training (although it’s a separate course) or as a standalone booking. Our staff are friendly and experienced forest school leaders and are always on hand to help.

I would like to acknowledge just how wonderful I thought the course was that I went on. Annie and Neil were two of the warmest, friendliest and professional trainers I’ve had the pleasure to meet. From day one they made us feel very welcome and put us at ease. They were always happy to explain anything that you might be having trouble with. Even if the questions were repetitive. Always with a smile was their approach which was reassuring for everyone. They have a rare quality of establishing a great connection with all participants from the get go. I look forward to completing the coursework and putting into action the skills we have learnt from them both.

Thank you so much. I have really enjoyed my time with The Outdoors Group very much. The new skills and confidence I have acquired have given me a new zest for learning so much more. I am seriously looking forward to sharing and growing in knowledge alongside the children I will teach. I found the teaching within The Outdoors Group empowering and creative, I now have a job that I am truly excited about and I have to pinch myself as it doesn’t feel real.
