hey Lilly, i hope your well, unfortunately i cant go to the great Scottish spoon hoolie so i wont see you. i have my portfolio to do. I was hoping to talk to you about getting into doing a NOCN Level 3 Certificate in Forest School Programme Leadership (QCF) during my apprenticeship during summer when the coppice is quite.
The course is quite pricey and it is something i feel really passionate about. i was wondering if i could be a candidate, i already have ideas then am just about to have so fun with ash and lunar.
i am going to do a a few days at ousby thie summer to help out if thats okay.
i was also wondering since am on a BHMT apprentice if there would of been any chance of a discount or a grant i could apply for to help with the cost? its slowly down now after all the feeling and dressing out has finished so running slow. sorry to be pushy.
