What are the courses about?
Our outdoor leadership courses are designed to ensure you get in-depth industry knowledge and practical hands-on experience to give you the best start to an incredible career in the outdoor industry anywhere in the world.
What will I do as part of the courses?
You will be taught by our industry recognised professionals who have many years' experience in a variety of roles within the outdoor industry.
You will also benefit from a wide range of specialist equipment and constant access to Norfolk's stunning waterways, woodland landscapes, and East Coast surf where you will be able to experiment with a variety of water and adventure sports such as kayaking, surfing, bushcraft and survival skills.
Over the duration of the course, you will develop leadership skills and undertake additional NGB qualifications in paddle sport, wind sports and bushcraft skills.
You will also take part in an expedition that has seen previous students travel the width of the country on bikes they built themselves, climbing in the Lake District and some paddled the 3 largest lakes in the country.
Many of our students have gone on to a range of exciting careers and are working for companies such as PGL Adventure, Neilson Holidays, Acorn Adventure, Channel Training, Whitlingham Adventure and Rockley Watersports.
Others choose to go to university and head to Cumbria, Bangor, Chichester and Southampton to pursue courses in outdoor leadership, environmental leadership and advanced sports coaching.
