We are thrilled to share that Young Bristol’s Outdoor Employment Programme (formally ITS) will be recruiting new trainees in October 2020.
The free programme, available to young people ages 16 – 25, will commence on Thursday 8th October 2020. The programme offers young people the chance to develop new skills, gain nationally recognised qualifications, and build a positive future into employment as an outdoor instructor.
Our Outdoor Employment Programme prides itself in providing meaningful and high quality experiences that raise aspirations. Around 86% of young people aged 16 – 24 had a positive outcome from engaging with our Instructor Training Scheme during 2018-19.
The programme has continued successfully since our phased reopening launched in July 2020, with trainees completing their British Canoeing Foundation Safety and Rescue Training (FSRT) last week. We also wish good luck to those trainees starting their Kayak Instructor Course this weekend!
