FSLI – Forest School Learning Initiative

For many years l had wanted to become a qualified nature teacher in an Australian context. I had studied overseas though recognised that there were many elements that just couldn’t be translated.

Learning how to use a Kelly Kettle.

In 2016 an opportunity through Nature Play arose and I was fortunate to be part of the first FSLI – Forest School Learning Initiative- training in Australia, gaining a wealth of skills to become a Forest School Leader Level 3.


Supported by this training and over time taking children into nature l have gained many and varied skills to safely and enthusiastically introduce children and their families to this benefit risk experience.

One of the ways we help children learn to manage and assess risk is to initially to place a red rope around trees, which forms a visual boundary for children.

I can highly recommend that you take the time to view their website, facebook page or contact me to have a chat to see if this training is part of your learning journey.

I now work part time for FSLI supervising and assessing students in their practical aspects to become Forest School Leaders . https://www.fsli.co.uk/
