The Institute of Outdoor Learning Peaks Group would like to tell you about their new upcoming special event……

Woodland Skills Development for Outdoor Professionals
– a great CPD opportunity
20th – 22nd October 2014 – Springwood, Derbyshire, DE73 8BJ

Timings: 09:30am on Day 1 – finish for 4:00pm on Day 3. This is a residential course, accommodation will be either in your own tents / vans or in shelters that you will need to build on site!
A 3 day residential programme that is being run by one of the most experienced buschraft trainers in the UK, Dave Watson. This course has been put together for individuals who have either some basic knowledge of bushcraft, perhaps having completed an introductory course, or the more experienced individual who may be delivering bushcraft activities (or Forest Schools) but wants to undertake some professional development and learn some new skills and ideas or refine some existing ones.
Over the three days we will be spending time on various topics including; Opening up how you view woodland, Axes and Froes for chopping and splitting wood of various sizes, advanced knife skills to make various items, wooden structures (including willow) that can last, confident tree id, wild food and wilderness cookery, especially with groups, advanced fire lighting, string and rope making as well as some basic tracking skills.
If you are getting serious about using Bushcraft then you will get a lot out of this course. This will be an opportunity to share ideas and best practice with fellow practitioners, to network and to ask the expert those questions you always wanted an answer to .
The cost of the course is: £265 for IOL members and £325 for non-IOL members.
Places are strictly limited so early booking is advised.
