On Wednesday 15th November, Young Bristol are celebrating 10 years of our Outdoor Employment Programme!
Young Bristol’s Outdoor Employment Programme (formerly known as the Instructor Training Scheme) was founded in 2013, where we have welcomed 30-60 trainees onto the programme each year! The programme offers young people 12 instructor qualifications in a range of outdoor activities, with a training process that allows them to meet local employers such as SS Great Britain and Redpoint Climbing Centre.
We have seen some outstanding successes from the programme, with at least 80% of the trainees starting further education, training or employment within a year of their first session. The Outdoor Employment Programme has become a huge asset to young people in Bristol, and we are proud to be celebrating 10 years of success with the programme!
Our set guest list will join us from 6:30pm, where they will enjoy champagne and canapes on arrival. We plan to hear from former and current trainee’s who have been through the programme, who will discuss how the Outdoor Employment Programme has positively impacted them!
Located at SS Great Britain Harbourside Kitchen, Great Western Dockyard, Gas Ferry Road, BS1 6TY. Paid parking is available at the venue.
