Wild things! is an award winning environmental education charity based in Moray, Scotland. We offer accredited training courses for teachers, educators and outdoor enthusiasts throughout the UK, enabling our students to deliver exciting outdoor sessions to learners of all ages.
Our Woodland Activity Leader Training (WALT) is an affordable, in-depth 7 day equivalent to Forest School, accredited by the NCFE and endorsed by the General Teaching Council for Scotland. Packed full of practical skills, environmental learning, games and creative ideas, WALT equips educators with the knowledge and confidence to design and deliver your own outdoor sessions, bringing the benefits of outdoor learning to the students in your care.
For those with schools near the sea, our Coastal Activity Leader Training course offers the same invaluable outdoor training coupled with the considerations and naturalist knowledge required to deliver outdoor sessions in a coastal context.
Imagine having your own Outdoor Learning Leader in your school! Not only will your teachers further their professional development, but your students will benefit from the many advantages of outdoor learning including increased focus, enhanced fun-factor and improved health & wellbeing.
