The Instructor Training Scheme (ITS) is an entirely free outdoor employment programme that trains young people aged 16 – 24, who lack direction to become an outdoor activity instructor in a variety of outdoor activities including Kayaking, Canoeing, Climbing and High Ropes.
ITS offers young people the chance to develop new skills, gain nationally recognised qualifications, and build a positive future into employment as an outdoor instructor, with local partner outdoor centres. Young people can gain qualifications including:
- ‘ERCA’ High Ropes Instructor
- ‘British Canoeing’ Canoe and Kayak Instructor
- ‘Mountain Training’ Climbing Instructor
- ‘Royal Yachting Association’ Powerboat driving course
- HSE accredited First Aid Qualification
The free programme runs one afternoon and one evening session per week, usually on a Thursday from our Pooles Wharf Outdoor Activity Centre and aims to fit in around existing college and work commitments.
Delivered by experienced and accredited outdoor instructors at our AALA licensed outdoor centre, it is a very practical programme, trainees will be outside come rain or shine!
We are recruiting!
Our Instructor Training Scheme (ITS) is now recruiting for younger people to become Outdoor Instructors. Not only will you gain qualifications in Outdoor Pursuits and receive a First Aid Certificate, you will also meet new friends, build confidence and improve your physical and mental ability. All of which will increase your future work opportunities.
Come and find out more about the Instructor Training Scheme, meet with staff, and chat with young people who are already involved with the programme. Parents and guardians welcome.
