An Introduction to horticulture

Forest school practice has become one of the fastest growing movements in education in the UK.

The Forest School environment provided by Incredible Education is based on an adaptation to the Scandinavian approach to early years provision. The concept of being outdoors and close to nature and its many benefits to children’s development will be embraced throughout the many forest school activities and sessions.

SCHOOLS & COLLEGES

Incredible Education are on the Salford City Councils Approved Register for Alternative Provision. The local authority has established an approved provider register for alternative provision to help schools and other relevant services plan and commission appropriate provision from providers that comply with locally-agreed quality standards.

 

We work with many schools & colleges providing both enrichment and accredited Horticulture Qualifications. We can create bespoke programmes to suit the needs of individual schools. Previously we have delivered 6 week enrichment growing groups to full time accredited qualifications covering a full academic year. We are a recognised centre for the delivery of Open Awards Qualification
