Having successfully completed parts 1 & 2 of my Bushcraft Training with Survival School, it was now time to move on to Part 3, which involves observing, training and being mentored to deliver 16 bushcraft sessions.

Having successfully completed parts 1 & 2 of my Bushcraft Training with Survival School, it was now time to move on to Part 3, which involves observing, training and being mentored to deliver 15 bushcraft sessions.

My first course as an assistant instructor took place in Staffordshire over the weekend 28-30 January and was attended by 5 hardy folk who managed to brave the sub zero temperatures on Friday & Saturday night to successfully complete the course. Much of time was spent observing and assisting on sessions to familiarise myself with the content and session delivery required by Survival School. However, my turn in the hot seat was to come on Sunday morning, where I was asked to deliver a breakfast session on how to make damper bread, which went very well indeed.

My next course will be in March and I’ll need to pick out a few sessions to deliver from the list below.

  1. Welcome & Safety Brief
  2. Cutting Tool Safety
  3. Game Preparation – Pigeon
  4. Breakfast Bread – Complete
  5. Cutting Techniques
  6. Shelters
  7. Game Preparation – Trout
  8. Game Preparation – Rabbit
  9. Fire
  10. Traps & Snares
  11. Water
  12. Natural Cordage
  13. Knife Law
  14. Knife Sharpening
  15. Foraging
  16. Natural Navigation
  17. Woodland Sauna
  18. Closing Brief

In the meantime, I’ll be out in the woods practicing my own skills to ensureĀ a swift and successful instructor programme.
