As an activity centre, we also employ some course participants from the previous instructor course to work with us for the coming season.

Case Study of Career Progress – Simon Dolphin

“This course was the perfect way to start a career working in Outdoor Centres. It gave me a thorough grounding in all the various aspects of how to become a professional instructor and the skills to become confident an effective in the way I coach. I went from having no experience or qualifications to working at many activity centres all over the UK and I am now enjoying being busy a freelance instructor in the South-West.”

Case Study of Career Progress – Amanda Van-Santen

“I did this course in my gap year and it gave me such an awakening in how people can make a proper career in this line of work. As well as getting qualified to teach the sports, so many of the soft skills you learn make a real difference in all aspects of life. I had a job as an instructor at 2 different outdoor centres in the UK and then went on to start a surf school in Fuerteventura in the Canaries. I have never looked back!”

It was exactly what I was looking for as I was nervous about the career change and it left me in no doubt this was what I wanted to do as a new career.
