I have worked alongside Chris in his role of teaching both adults and children in varying outdoor areas. The approach Chris takes to teaching outdoors is both inspirational and motivational. He has a very good awareness of health and safety and safeguarding and also of the current National Curriculum requirements. Chris is hardworking, friendly and approachable.

A particular strength Chris demonstrates is his ability to engage children who may not feel they are successful learners in the mainstream classroom. I have observed Chris support adults who are looking to gain new skills, mainstream primary schools who are developing their use of the outdoor area and Forest School approach and also groups of boys in a secondary school who have started to disengaged with learning.

I have no hesitation in recommending Chris.
