Career vs Job:  Develop a Passion

Outdoor Instructor Course

Have you ever taken the time to really think about the career that you want?  Have you always had an idea about the direction you want or take but never really known how to execute it?  Or perhaps you are desperate to make that change but the right time has just never really come along?  We understand all these questions here at Outdoor Adventure, we have now re-introduced our highly recommended and recognised Outdoor Instructors Course.  If you are in a job you’re not happy with or just finishing education but want a career in the outdoor industry here’s why we think you should apply to us:


We are in one of the most stunning locations in the South West, just up from Widemouth Bay, sat on the cliffs.  There’s no need to look any surf report up, we just turn around and check out the waves from the window.  All our training is in the real-life environment, so we train on the cliffs, train in the sea and on the beach.  We have access to so many stunning areas right on the doorstep.


You will be experiencing a high level of instruction, Outdoor Adventure has been here since 1980 so we are a highly experienced team with multiple disciplines.  During your course, you will be fully trained and assessed in specific sports, receive soft skills training alongside gaining a huge amount of awareness and general working knowledge about the outdoor industry. We also include the additional benefit of an introduction to other popular activities delivered at Outdoor Centres to broaden your experience as much possible.  You will gain qualifications in Kayak and Canoeing, Rock Climbing, Surfing, Surf Lifesaving, Stand up Paddleboarding, Archery, Coasteering, Safeguarding and First Aid.

Preparing professionally

Gaining employment in the outdoor industry is the whole purpose of completing our instructor training course and we will be working hard to give you the skills and guidance to enable you to get the job you are aiming for. We ensure you leave with a professionally prepared CV, provide you with interview practice and preparation to ensure you come across well in an interview and make sure you fully understand the pros and cons of working in the different types of outdoor centres. This training course will give you everything the best outdoor centres look for when they are considering someone for a new instructor position and we can be sure of this because we do the same when endeavouring to employ only the very best at our own centre!
