First Aid Training for Forest School (& Outdoor Woodland Learning) 
 
Forest School Leaders are required to have an adequate and appropiate First Aid Certificate in place before you run your Forest School Programmes.  
 
As a training organisation, FSTC strongly recommends that the First Aid qualification is: 
At least sixteen-hour long 
An Outdoor Specific Course 
Cover the age groups you work with 
And is updated every 3 years  
 
In Scotland, we have adapted a course in partnership with the First Aid Training Co-operative, called Outdoor First Aid for Forest School and Outdoor Woodland Learning. The course is specially designed to meet the needs of practitioners working in outdoor environments with groups of children, and aims to build skills and confidence. Courses are taught with an emphasis on practical application, contextual relevance and built up in small achievalbe chunks with lots of repetition.  
 
One of our FSTC trainers, Aline Hill, also runs the Outdoor First Aid for Forest School and Outdoor Woodland Learning courses, which ensures they are perfectly aligned to the needs of practitioners. Contact her on aline@forestschoolscotland.co.uk  
 
 
In England, we recommend the 2-day ITC Outdoor Forest School First Aid course. The context for this training course is Forest School and as such the discussion, practice and outdoor scenarios are suited to Forest School situations. The course is taught in a 'Forest School way', using small achievable chunks, repetition and scaffolding. It is very hands-on and includes outdoor role-play scenarios, so you will need to wear suitable outdoor clothing!
