Training with Expertise and Integrity

With more than 30 years experience of delivering courses and training, Small Woods courses have gained a reputation for high quality teaching and professionalism. Most courses take place at the well-equipped Green Wood Centre in Coalbrookdale, Telford. We have a range of indoor and outdoor teaching areas that provide a range of versatile spaces for our diverse range of courses.

We work in partnership with approved external providers to deliver courses across the UK. We expect all courses to meet the high standards that have been established over many years and to use only experienced professionals and woodland practitioners as tutors.

Small Woods strives to ensure the best quality learning experience by keeping course numbers low. Our courses, unless otherwise specified, are suitable for all levels of experience and ability. We have many years experience in enabling all groups to attend courses and will make every effort to ensure a satisfying experience for all.
