I have been a primary school teacher since 2002. During that time I have led many curriculum areas but in 2010 I was lucky enough to participate in an Outdoor Environmental Education course run through Linköping University in Sweden. To this day, it is still the best CPD I ever had. It changed everything for me and having seen first hand the benefit of the Scandinavian approach, I was able to bring some elements in to my teaching back home. It was in 2017 I took the full leap into the outdoors and trained as a Level 3 Forest School Leader and set up Green Earth Learning. I'm now in a privileged position to see first hand the impact being in the outdoors can have on our young people and the environment in which they play.
