For adults we can provide a range of activities or bespokeevents

Forest Quest has opportunities for adults to work part-time with us.  We run a training programme on a volunteer basis to enable anyone new to forest schools to learn the basics to become an Assistant with us.  This can develop through external training to become a Group Leader running activities whilst under the guidance of our experienced Leaders.  We also have opportunities for trained Forest School Leaders, again on a part-time basis.
