Training to teach on Selsey beach

A WORLD-renowned training course for working with children will come to Selsey this month.

Archimedes Training, the leading provider of training for Forest Schools and Beach Schools in the UK, has announced it will be delivering its Level 3 Beach Schools Practitioners Award course in Selsey on August 28-29.

Beach and Forest Schools are educational approaches to outdoor play and learning and use programmes in natural areas for personal, social and emotional development in children and young adults.

They are run by professionally-trained and assessed Beach Schools practitioners who use play and bush skills such as fire lighting and wood craft in a learner-led environment. The course is exclusive to Archimedes Training and has never come to Selsey before.

The Beach Schools Practitioner course is perfect for anyone already working with or would like to work with children and enables them to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding to set up and run their own Beach School Programme in their community.

Archimedes has trained more than 4,000 people and is now the largest Forest School and Beach School training provider in the world. To book a place on the training course or for further information, visit or call 0114 2211811.
