- CASE STUDY: 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!"
- CASE STUDY: Career Progress - Si Dolphin ""This course was the perfect way to start a career in the outdoor industry. It gave me a thorough grounding in many aspects of professional instruction and the appropriate skills to coach confidently and with an effective manner. I went from having no experience or qualifications to a season abroad with Neilson Active, coaching equivalent instructor courses for Cornwall College, setting up and running an injured Veterans Surf charity in Bude, leading an Alpine kayak expedition and enjoying a busy career as a freelance instructor in Cornwall and Devon. 19 years ago, Outdoor Adventure opened a door for me that has proved to be the most enjoyable and satisfying period of my life."
Outdoor Adventure is situated at Widemouth Bay, Bude on the unspoilt, rugged north Cornwall coast. It is easy to get to and only 1 hour from the M5 junction at Exeter.
