Job Prospects & Instructor Opportunities After Your Training Course

Whilst on your instructor course you will be learning about all the different job pathways available within the outdoor industry. Outdoor Adventure is regarded as one of the leading outdoor activity centres in the UK and known best for its consistent commitment to quality – this means instructors passing through our training courses are expected to be of a high standard and therefore have a head start when applying for jobs.

 

You may be able to join us!

As an activity centre, we also employ some course participants from the previous instructor training course to work with us for the coming season. This can be a fantastic opportunity to put all your new coaching skills and qualifications into practice at a centre you are already familiar with where you know you will be supported, challenged and encouraged to progress in your new career as an outdoor professional.

Case Study of Career Progress – Amanda Van Santen

The intense instructor training course not only provided me with the right training and leading industry qualifications, but more importantly I know now those experiences and mentors you get when first starting off play a significant role in scoping your path and robustness into the industry. Outdoor Adventure provided me with the fundamental stepping stones in preparing me for my career in the outdoor industry, with memories and experiences I will treasure and never forget. A truly breathtaking location in an amazing part of the world”.

Case Study of Career Progress – Andy McKenzie

“I left the Navy and came on the instructor course at Outdoor Adventure. It was exactly what I was looking for as I was nervous about a career change and the course gave me so much more self confidence and a totally new set of skills to use in a completely different line of work. The time at Outdoor Adventure left me in no doubt this was what I wanted to do as my new career. I worked my way up from being a new instructor at an adventure centre to gaining a top management position 12 years later at one of the most well known outdoor centres in the UK!”
