Accredited Training FAQ
What is involved in the training?
What will I submit at the end?
- A minimum of two lessons plans that have all or sections of our approach being used – no names to be disclosed, please
- A minimum of two samples of some of the activities completed. We like you to tailor this approach to your setting and children so not all tasks may be appropriate. But we like to make sure all areas are covered. So this could be a reflective brainstorm, risk assessment. Up to you. It is important to note all activities are in place to better support you and for you to have outstanding outdoor learning practice and policies in place to show managers, leaders, inspectors and governors.
- Completed questionnaire assessment given in Level 4.
How long will it take me?
That is up to you. You have three years to complete the training. On average, it takes around 3 months
What will I gain from it?
Once you have submitted your portfolio, this will be assessed by a qualified teacher and Muddy teacher and, if successful, you will be sent a certificate, unique training number, crest for publications, CPD points and a Muddy Hooray on social media (if you want it!)
What if I am not successful?
If we read your portfolio and see that there are some areas you have not fully understand then we help you. We are here to help you achieve success, just as we are for the children we teach. However, rest assure the programme itself is very thorough and is set for success!
Please ensure you take safety seriously and that school management, headteachers, parents, staff and others are contacted and well informed of the training you’re doing and the tasks involved.
