Jackie

Founder, Director and Trainer

Jackie is a lively and enthusiastic individual, who uses her obvious passion for learning in the outdoors to engage and inspire both children, adults and the occasional dog.

On paper, she is a qualified teacher, forest school leader and trainer, an outdoor first-aider, a skilled environmental educator and has a PGDip in Education. She is one of only ten Forest School Association Endorsed Trainers in the UK and the only one in Wales. This year she will begin studying for a Masters in Outdoor Education.

Jackie has worked for many of Bristol's green institutions including the Avon Gorge and Downs Wildlife Project, Bristol Zoo and the Wild Place Project.

When she isn't Forest Schooling, Jackie can be found in the Wye Valley, generally getting muddy and enjoying the countryside.
