A summary
This one day course in Outdoor Food Safety has been designed to provide those who cater for children, young people and adults in outdoor settings with the knowledge and understanding of food hygiene and skills in safe handling and cooking to enable them to safely cater for individuals and groups. This Level 2 qualification is suitable for Forest School Leaders and assistants, nursery practitioners, scouting leaders or anyone who handles, prepares or serves food for groups outdoors. You will learn how to keep food and your group safe and comply with the legal requirements in an outdoor setting where there may be no access to running water, refrigeration, or the facilities associated with a catering kitchen. The course is a mixture of theory and practical application with observational assessments made throughout the day and a short written test to conclude the course. After successful completion candidates will receive a Level 2 Certificate from ITC First.

Charlotte's Wood
Charlotte's Wood is a place where people can connect with nature. It is a tranquil, privately owned woodland in the heart of rural East Anglia - large enough to lose yourself in but not large enough to get lost in! The woodland has a path running around the perimeter that makes it accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs. Next to Charlotte's Wood are two luxury holiday lodges and a cosy log cabin sits on the woodland edge.  The cabin is used as a venue for meetings and training and as a meeting point and shelter during woodland activities. It can also be hired as a place to stay. There is a toilet in the cabin at the entrance to the woodland and a compost loo in the woodland that is used during sessions. At the woodland Charlotte facilitates various activities and events for adults and children throughout the year. The overarching aims of these are to provide meaningful nature connection experiences for all in order to promote physical and emotional wellbeing, to bring people together and promote social interactions and to generate a lifelong love of being outside in the natural world. These experiences include: * Level 3 Forest School Leader training, taster days and CPD sessions for Forest School Leaders and assistants. * Wellbeing Days and PD Days for school staff and other organisations. * Seasonal 'Woodland Wellbeing' sessions and Forest Bathing experiences. * 'Learn to Nordic Walk' courses and regular Health and Fitness Walks. * 'Wild Wood Holiday Club' for children aged 4-11 years. * 'Little Woodies' - Weekly Parent and Toddler Forest School sessions. * Seasonal Events for parents and toddlers such as the Halloween Spooktacular, Easter Eggstravaganza, Elf and Fairy Party, Teddy Bears' Picnic and Christmas Little Woodies.
