About this programme

An Outdoor Activity Instructor supervises and guides children and adults in a vast array of activities from canoeing, sailing and climbing to hillwalking, archery and bushcraft. 

 

The main focus and responsibility of an Outdoor Activity Instructor is to run a safe, engaging and enjoyable activity session. They’ll be skilled in planning, delivering a well targeted session and setting outcomes with participants. They’ll operate within set guidelines, will meet  Health & Safety criteria and have full awareness of safeguarding and data protection requirements. 

The programme will arm them with the knowledge of how to carefully assess their group/participants and tailor a session accordingly based on things such as group size, age, mental and physical ability, and relevant medical information. They’ll also have to take into account planning sessions based on the weather and other external factors; safety always being of paramount importance.

​An outdoor activity instructor will display a positive attitude and will become an extremely sought after individual by employers such as outdoor adventure and education centres.
