Simon has worked in the field of outdoor education for several years and has taught water-sports, archery and Forest School programs. He is qualified as an OCN Level 3 Forest School Leader giving him the skills to take full responsibility for setting up, running and evaluating woodland programmes.
As an outdoor instructor he has worked with a diverse range of groups from varied backgrounds, including mainstream education and excluded children.
Each group brings its own challenges and rewards and Simon believes everyone can benefit from the positive experiences to be had at Forest School.
Simon is never happier when out in the woods but does enjoy his creature comforts when at home!
Harry has worked with young people in various settings for almost 15 years. Starting off as a community outreach worker in London he went on to become involved in youth work and harm-minimisation projects.
Harry is an OCN Level 3 Forest School Leader and a multi qualified water-sports coach with many years experience of teaching groups with varying educational and emotional needs.
The more he works with forest school groups the more Harry sees the far reaching holistic benefits of ongoing access to natural environments. His particular interest lies in the ability of young people to gain the confidence to assess and manage risk in all areas of their lives for themselves.
If the snow is falling or the sun is shining there is no place Harry would rather be than under the canopy with a fire to tend and a stick to whittle.
