I really appreciate and value everything that doing the forest school training has taught me. It has been an interesting journey that has given me the confidence that I can provide a professional programme. Doing this course has greatly improved my skillset and understanding. Since passing my tools practical I have made various wood work projects at home and with students, including smowmen made of discs, spatula's and tent pegs. I have passed on knowledge about woodland structure and management to my learners, and done more identifiction with them. Through doing the course I have made key contacts that continue to support me in my work, making me feel less isolated, and giving me opportunity to discuss issues that arise. It has also given me access to further training and skill sharing events which makes me confident that my practice will only ever improve.
