I strongly believe that a good outdoor instructor has more to offer than national governing qualifications. My life skills of working with young people, adults and the armed forces in challenging environments around the world means I can bring experience and enthusiasm to any of my courses.
I have taken a wide range of clients on extensive expeditions to Norway, Canada, Africa, France and Spain. I have enjoyed this challenging work and I would look forward to working in any environment that clearly values developing people through high aspirations, appropriate challenging pursuits, environmental education, leadership and teamwork.
It is important that young people have a sense of ownership of the adventure and challenge they are undertaking. I am able to offer clients and staff the opportunity to gain first aid/ leadership/coaching qualifications such as
Hill and Mountain skills,
Personal performance Awards and FSRT

In order that they become leaders / coaches themselves and empower others. This would be useful when supporting outdoor education programmes; ensuring clients and staff are kept safe by following best practise.
