If you’ve ever thought of working in the outdoor industry either in the UK or abroad, then this is the course for you and an ideal introduction into the exciting world of outdoor adventure education.

The first (and best) thing you’ll notice about this course is that it’s about practical learning – you’ll be spending a lot of time outside the classroom, developing skills and experience in a wide range of outdoor activities, alongside developing your leadership and coaching skills.

You’ll be looking at everything associated with being employed in the outdoor industry: from managing risks and keeping groups and yourself safe in the outdoors, looking at how the body works and what the fitness requirements are to overcome challenges and complete expeditions through to developing your own coaching and leadership style that will help you get the most out of the people you work with.

As well as our on-site facilities which include a gym and sports hall, you’ll also benefit from being situated in one of the best placed college campuses for outdoor activities anywhere in the UK. Our highly experienced instructors will have you out and about for a whole day of practical activity one day a week all year. We will provide access to equipment and training that means rather than sitting in a classroom every day you could be out paddling on lakes and rivers, climbing on indoor and outdoor routes, ripping up trails on a mountain bike, navigating over Dartmoor or Bodmin and even catching the odd wave.

As a Level 2 course, this diploma is all about introducing you to the outdoor industry and developing your essential skills. You’ll be learning from experienced outdoor and sports coaches and instructors, who are there to give you the very best start to your career.

  What You Will Learn

This one-year introduction will give you a taster of the requirements for working in the outdoor industry, giving you the chance to start developing the essential skills and knowledge needed to succeed in the outdoors.

You’ll experience a mix of classroom and outdoor sessions, often working with groups from across the college and local schools to give you a real experience of instructing in the outdoors.

  Entry Requirements

You will need 4 GSCEs at Grade 3, including English and Maths to access the Level 2

  Work Experience

The outdoor industry in the South West is on the rise, there are plenty of opportunities for you to put your new found skills to the test during your work experience placement at one of the many local outdoor centres that we work closely with.

  Assessment

You will be assessed through workbooks, presentations and practical assignments throughout the year.

  Progression

Once you’ve finished the Level 2 course, you’ll have a real understanding of the outdoor industry and will be ready to continue building your skills by moving on to the more advanced Level 3 courses or you could get out there and apply for entry level jobs in the industry.
