Bushcraft Outdoor Programme

This suite of qualifications is especially designed to help engage individuals who might find learning challenging and who would benefit from a personalised programme of study to meet their specific needs.

Personal development and learning units can be combined with vocational taster units to produce a course tailored to individual needs, thus encouraging learners to progress to further study or employment.

The Step-UP qualifications are approved by Ofqual for use with pre-16s, 16-18s and 19 years plus. The LASER Step-UP qualifications offer an extensive curriculum choice that can be personalised to engage the learner. Programmes can be built by combining core skills (Employability,Personal & Social Development and Literacy & Numeracy) and vocational options, allowing learners to try different subject areas, assisting them to make future study choices. Learners can work at their own pace, taking assessments when they are ready, in a way that suits their learning styles. Certification can be given for each unit, building towards the full nationally recognised and quality assured qualification.

The two one term courses are split into two blocks where students will be introduced to a range of skills from the following: shelter building, fire construction, wild food, woodland management, green woodworking, cooking, food preservation, tracking, biological surveys and much more!
