Course overview

This course is in partnership with Carymoor Environmental Trust.

The course is open to all but would be particularly beneficial for learners looking to improve their health and wellbeing. Learners will get to create two willow dragonflies and find out more about the amazing creatures that live in Long Pond. There will be a maximum of five participants on this course, with one tutor guiding you through the day.

This is a great chance to get outdoors at Carymoor’s unique nature reserve and learn new skills in a relaxed learning environment.

Course assessment

There are no formal assessments for this course. The tutor will give regular feedback to help you improve. Learners will be asked to complete a simple self-assessment task at the beginning and end of the course.
