This 12-week residential course aims to set you up with technical skills in a variety of outdoor sports, alongside up-to-date and effective coaching knowledge, plus leading real sessions with real customers gives you plenty of time to hone and perfect these new skill sets while under the watchful eye of our coach educators.
This all enables you to gain employment in outdoor centres or work as a freelance instructor. The length of the course allows us to develop your natural skills and hone you into an outdoor professional, this covers your technical performance in each sport, but also the science behind coaching these sports.
We work on canoeing, kayaking, climbing, mountain biking, gorge walking, mountain walking, bushcraft and team building as the core activities that you need to know. These will then be put to the test throughout the course, by leading 'guinea pig' groups on real activities. National governing body (NGB) skills awards will be assessed throughout the course. At the end of the course NGB instructor assessments will take place.
Depending on your ability and performance, by the end of the course you should have achieved: BCU 1 & 2 star awards, BCU 3 star (in a discipline of your choice), BCU FSRT, BCU UKCC Level 1 Coach, Emergency Outdoor First Aid, MTUK SPA Training, and Bushcraft practitioner skills.
