Forest Education Network
Following the success of FEN's first national CPD event in 2017 we are delighted to announce the details of the second event, taking place in the National Forest at Rosliston Forestry Centre, South Derbyshire, on Thursday 4th April 2019.
The Forest Education Network for England brings together key national, regional and local forestry and education organisations and in the year of the Forestry Commission’s 100thanniversary FEN is excited to celebrate forest education past, present and future.
The day is designed to expand delegates’ knowledge and understanding of ecology and management of the UK’s forests and woodlands and provide them with practical advice on managing their own sites for the benefit of both nature and people, as well as activities to use with young people.
Whether you are a teacher, forest school practitioner, outdoor learning provider, woodland owner, or simply interested in Britain’s forests and woodland, this biannual event will provide you with sources of information, advice and valuable networks to improve your knowledge and practice.
In the diverse woodlands of Rosliston Forestry Centre, delegates will participate in three inspiring and practical workshop sessions led by national forestry and education experts.
This CPD event is organised by FEN steering group members: Woodland Trust, Sylva Foundation, Forest School Association, Forestry Commission, Royal Forestry Society, Council for Learning Outside the Classroom and the National Forest. We are very grateful to the National Forest for supporting some of the costs of this event. We are also pleased that Woodland Trust will be providing an overview of their new ‘Tree Tools for Schools’ resource. This free, online resource has activities linked to the primary curriculum and supports many of the topics covered in this CPD event.
