Forest Education Network England: National CPD Event

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.

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.

The day is designed to expand delegates’ knowledge and understanding of the ecology and management of the UK’s forests and woodlands and provide them with practical advice.

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.

Workshop A: From tree to wood product! Information, resources and activities on how we use British trees
Workshop B: Caring for our trees! Identification skills and tree health awareness to understand and protect our woodlands
Workshop C: Creating Forests for Learning! Creating new woodland sites for schools and managing existing woodland sites for schools.

The event will offer plenty of chances to get outside and explore the heart of the National Forest. In addition, 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. There will be opportunities for networking with other forest educators and browsing the forest education resources on display.

Due to the nature of the inspiring workshops numbers are limited for this event. Book today to ensure you don’t miss out.

All income raised through this event will enable the Forest Education Network England to continue its work promoting forest education and supporting forest educators.
