COVID-19: update on TGC’s services

Updated 12th November 2020 

TGC is regularly monitoring the spread of Covid-19 virus and it’s impact on our charity’s ability to deliver services to customers. 

Based on the latest information from the UK government and Public Health England we are currently designing and delivering outdoor learning programmes of support for London schools. Services include school staff CPD training and direct services of outdoor learning either on school grounds or in a local park for children in small groups. 

Outdoor leaning in natural environments will play a crucial role in helping schools to honour social distancing requirements and to improve mental and physical health and wellbeing. 

CPD training services will include ITC First accredited training including qualifications such as Forest School Level 3,  ITC’s Learning Beyond the Classroom, and first aid for outdoor learning and more. We can also design and deliver training to suit your school’s requirements.

Islington Council Parks

Regarding the new national London lockdown in England: London Borough of Islington have confirmed that TGC are able to continue to deliver our education in Islington’s parks. We continue to deliver education sessions working with bubble groups. 

We fully understand the crucial role green spaces will be able to play to support schools during lockdown.

Islington has the lowest amount of open access green space per person and Islington Council’s parks department works in partnership with TGC and is able to provide a clear, simple and short online booking system for schools to be able to take their pupils in small groups outdoors to learn.

To book a TGC outdoor learning session for small groups of up to 10 children in a London park please email:

Sessions start from £150 with discounts for block booking of 10 sessions or more.

TGC will provide a risk assessment with social distancing instructions and structure. In particular we encourage schools to book early for the new academic year as we foresee an increase in demand.
