VOlunteering and work experience

Little Foxes Forest School offer student placements and volunteer opportunities all year round. You can play, explore and learn as part of a great team with us for a minimum of 1 week.  You don’t need to have any previous qualification or experience. We are hoping for students that would like to develop their knowledge in outdoor education and volunteers who would like to get a first glimpse of teaching in a forest nursery.  All our work experiences are unpaid. You will need to provide an up to date DBS check or take care of the cost if you would prefer us to run a check for you.  Please do get in touch if have any questions.

If you would like to apply, please email us at  to request a volunteer application form.

The best teachers are those who tell you where to look, but don't tell you what to see.
