About Me

Hi everyone! I am 42 years old and have 3 wonderful children aged 23, 19 and 10! I am a currently an Outdoor Instructor and Forest School Leader for Explore Outdoor which is the outdoor sector of Abbeycroft Leisure. I managed Explore Outdoor for a year whilst my manager was on sabbatical and since his return we work alongside each other.
I love working with children and have a lot of fun with them! I was definitely put on this earth to play!
I have a current transferable DBS (available to check on the update service) and I am first aid trained in paediatrics and Outdoor First aid with a 16 hour qualification. I have my own insurance in place which enables me to run my own private Forest School sessions either in your own home/garden or within a woodland space with the owners permission. I am also a Safeguarding Trainer for Abbeycroft Leisure and I am also the club welfare officer and secretary for Great Barton Youth Football Club. Both of these positions have given me extensive training in Safeguarding children and I am very passionate about it too!

My Experience

I am currently working as an Senior Outdoor Instructor for Explore Outdoor and run sessions which may include Archery, climbing wall, fire lighting, team challenges/building, orienteering, geocaching, Forest School, family park cooking and much more. I work with children of all ages.
Previous to this role, I worked as a TA and Forest School Leader at Great Barton Primary school and did so for almost 15 years. I was also a dinner lady and absolutely loved my job.
I also have 3 children which I feel definitely adds to my experience with children.

My Qualifications

I have attended many courses within my role as a teaching assistant and have been to many workshops on Positive Play. I went on a circus skill course which I loved and hold an up to date food safety and hygiene certificate too! I have done so many courses I couldn't possibly name them all! I am also first aid trained in paediatrics and Outdoor First Aid. I have also had extensive training on autism, taking part in many autism/aspergers and behaviour workshops. I do not hold any "child care" qualifications but I feel my experience of my own children and within my employment are way more valuable! Although I have now completed 3 years of my degree which are equivalent to a FHEQ level 4 which included modules on Primary Education. I am also a Forest School leader level 3 and I am extremely passionate about Forest School.

My Availability

I am available most evenings and can run private Forest School sessions during weekends and possibly in the school holidays.
