Advanced Bushcraft Course – Level 4 – NCFE Accredited.
We have developed this Advanced Bushcraft Course to be as flexible to you as possible. Based over 12 months our Advanced Bushcraft Course covers 14 modules set over one weekend per month, a 9 day continuous period in the woods and a 7 day canoe expedition so 52 days in the woods over all!
You are able to complete the Advanced Bushcraft Course within 1 year, or take up to 3 years, by dipping in and out as time allows. You do have to complete each module, but we appreciate you might need some flexibility on time due to work\life commitments etc.
The Advanced Bushcraft Course covers the following modules:
- Fire By Friction
- Bark Craft
- Natural Shelter
- Hide Tanning
- Map Reading
- Natural Cordage
- Animal Tracking
- Tree Felling
- Green Woodworking
- Charcoal Making
Each month we delve deep into each module focusing on perfecting the foundations of your bushcraft skills as well as developing a deeper understanding of the woodland and what it offers. On the Advanced Bushcraft Course, every module will include teaching sessions, group and peer discussions and practical practice time. At the end of the weekend module you will be set a project to complete in your own time at home which you will then bring back the following month. These projects will go towards building up a personnel portfolio of practical projects and a personal journal to evidence your work.
The 9 day period in the woods allows you to spend a good amount time living in the woodland and learning to perfect the daily tasks and rhythm’s of long term wilderness living. Other lessons and projects will be taught whilst on the 9 day phase of the course such as tree felling, green woodworking and charcoal making, it is also a good chance to use items you have made leading up to the 9 day phase.
Bushcraft is also about travelling through wild places so we have factored in a 7 day canoe trip in Scotland so you are able to experience and hone your bushcraft skills on the move.
This advanced bushcraft course is all about you and your learning. John will be on hand to help you when you are not in the woods should you have any questions or need advice on your projects. There will also be a fortnightly Zoom meeting hosted by John to allow you to check in and discuss anything that’s on your mind.
Each weekend will run from Friday at 1800hrs and finish at 1300hrs on the Sunday.
