This course is for learners who wish to apply the Forest School learning approach in coastal environments and lead Coastal School sessions.
North Yorkshire Forest School Training and Tees Valley Wildlife Trust worked together in 2016 to pilot the delivery of a new Coastal School course.
We are continuing our partnership with Tees Valley Wildlife Trust in our delivery of the Coastal School Leader course in Saltburn. In addition, we are working with Durham Wildlife Trust to offer the course at Seaham and with the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust at the Living Seas Centre, Flamborough.
The 2-day course is designed for learners who wish to apply the Forest School learning approach in coastal environments. It will provide the skills and confidence to lead innovative and engaging learning sessions for children and young people in coastal locations.

The training days are a mix of classroom and outdoor learning. These prepare the student for the completion of tasks outside the training days, including the delivery of four Coastal School sessions, which will be submitted for assessment.
The course will include:
Knowledge of coastal ecosystems including ecology, weather and tides
Coastal activity ideas to inspire play and learning
Planning and evaluating Coastal School sessions
This course was absolutely fantastic! It was well led, included great activities, covered all health and safety and risk, and was so much fun. It really inspired me to expand my beach school programme and helps me differentiate activities between year groups. The location was great – lots and lots of wildlife I had never seen before which was very inspiring and motivating – hermit crabs, anemones, barnacles, fossils. Hazel was a fantastic leader as always, as was Steve. Thank you for a wonderful learning experience, would recommend it to everyone!

It was a really great mix of indoor theory and outdoor where we could investigate the different activities. It was good to meet with people from other Forest School groups too, to share experiences and ideas.
Class Teacher, Harrow Gate Primary Academy
Lots of great ideas to use with children of all ages. Activities clearly explained and demonstrated. Great sharing of knowledge and ideas within the group in a safe, fun and friendly environment. Love the practical side of the course and great way to extend info/knowledge/skills learnt on Forest School course. Can’t wait to share experiences with the children, hope they have as much fun as I did. Brilliant end to the half term!
