What curriculum does the course cover?

If you’re based in the UK, this course will help you teach children in EYFS, KS1 and KS2. For anywhere else, this course is suitable for children aged 4-11.

Who can do this training? 

First of all, we have some eligibility requirements you’ll need to meet. You’ll need to be an educator and be able to link to your curriculum.

This includes:

– Teachers

– Teaching assistants

– Nursery teachers

– Managers

– Childminders

– Daycare providers

– Home educators

So how does it work?

The course consists of two hours of reading and two hours of practical outdoor learning tasks. All your training will happen alongside children, in either a school or home setting. We also use only natural and up-cycled resources. This makes our outdoor curriculum very cost-effective, manageable and unique. Read about our Muddy Green Promise here.

I’m in! What’s the best payment option for me?

If you’re on a tight budget right now, opt to pay per stage. But if you really want value for money, buy all four stages for a lower cost by choosing this bundle package.
