Woodland Activity Leader Training

Our Woodland Activity Leader Training (WALT) is a unique alternative to Forest School which consolidates the most essential outdoor skills needed to lead your own exciting outdoor sessions. WALT empowers educators with the skills, knowledge and expertise to deliver inspiring environmental education, tailored to the needs of their students.

We believe that the best people to introduce environmental education and outdoor learning to their students are the teachers or activity leaders themselves. We know that there are many real and perceived barriers to getting students outdoors and we aim to address them all!
