Two days of classroom sessions and woodland visits are followed by a practical skills and woodland products day.
Coed Lleol - Small Woods employ freelance outdoor health & wellbeing facilitators to deliver our programmes. We have a Wales-wide network from a variety of specialisms including bushcraft skills, foraging, nature ID, woodwork, woodland management, and many more.
Activity Leaders are experienced in working with people of all ages and abilities, and plan sessions to help support individual physical and mental wellbeing.
All Activity Leaders are skilled practitioners and are supported to reach Coed Lleol - Small Woods’ minimum standards. These have been developed to build a stronger network of leaders whose qualifications and experience ensure trust between our organisation and the health professionals who refer to us.
We require our Activity Leaders to have, at a minimum, up to date certificates in the following:
Outdoor First Aid (16-hr)
Mental Health Awareness
Safeguarding children & vulnerable adults
You will also need to complete our Coed Lleol - Small Woods Best Practice online training & self-taught units.
We cover the cost of all the above training.
These training units detail the story of Coed Lleol-Small Woods, as well as the theory and practice of social prescribing and outdoor wellbeing:
|Unit 1:||Holding Space - Being a great practitioner|
|Unit 2:||Making an Impact - Creating memorable experiences|
|Unit 3:||Making it Happen - Planning & delivering programmes|
|Unit 4:||Keeping Safe - Health, safety & risk management|
|Unit 5:||Induction & Admin|
Where we can, we support Activity Leaders to access training in their areas of interest, for example:
The Wellbeing in Nature Practitioner qualification
Mental Health First Aid
Lowland walk leader training
We run regional skillshares for our Activity Leaders to get together, share ideas and learn new skills for their sessions.
We are not currently seeking new Activity Leaders for our programmes in Wales.
