Apprenticeships have always been something of a mystery for the outdoor industry.  Central to this is the reality that outdoor centres are places that are themselves experts in teaching and learning.  Centres already run their own effective training programmes perfected over season after season of recruitment.  They prepare instructors to do their job in a way no external provider can do.  So why do Apprenticeships?

Outdoor Centres that do find many benefits:

  • The involvement of a specialist training provider brings new levels of support for developing staff
  • The framework or standard gives a broad and inclusive picture of the industry
  • Structured learning and assessment on accredited programmes provides academic breadth to professional development and encourages progression to Higher Education
  • The Apprentice National Minimum Wage means pay can be structured in a way that reflects the significant commitment needed from the employer to train someone new
  • Employers can be more confident to grow new, young talent and draw staff from their community

Why choose Channel Training?
