Why work for Wild Learning?

“I’ve been working with Wild Learning for nearly five years now and I still look forward to the school holidays.”

Wild Learning are a Wild Play and Forest School organisation.

Since 2012 we’ve been helping children and grown-ups to find out about the outdoors and themselves, have adventures and make friends.

We believe that children should spend more time outdoors having fun, without adults constantly telling them what to do. We think they should be able to roam, explore, take risks, make friends, learn to negotiate, use their imaginations, run, climb, fall over, get up, get tired and get filthy, in a safe and supportive environment.

We run holiday clubs and outdoor learning programmes for schools and nurseries in woods across London and the South East.

“I’ve been working with Wild Learning from pretty much the beginning

– about 6 or 7 years – running holiday clubs, toddler sessions, school

groups of all ages. I particularly enjoy the flexibility and diversity of

work, in some truly stunning locations. Working freelance for such a

great company means I can book in as much work as I need, with

plenty of notice, and know when the pay runs will be, so I can

organise my finances accordingly.”

Jacqueline Bruce, Wild Learning Leader

We hire Forest School Leaders and outdoor educators on a freelance

basis to run our Wild Play holiday clubs, and term-time sessions for

school and nursery visits. We offer a flexible working environment

that allows you to book only the days you wish to work, we pay well and

promptly, and (if you like working outdoors) we have the best office

environment in the world.

Getting paid to work outside, in the woods, with great kids and colleagues

– if you’re into outdoor education and nature there’s nothing better! The

energy and enthusiasm of the kids is infectious. I think that as a company

we help to nurture and encourage that enthusiasm to enable them to

continue to be confident outdoor explorers into their adult lives.”
