about mendip outdoor pursuits
Established in 1987, Mendip Outdoor Pursuits has grown into the biggest and most reputable outdoor activity provider in the South West.
Our unique 250-acre site nestled in the heart of the Mendip Hills includes an indoor residential centre, two canvas villages, private rocksport quarry, unique snowsport slopes and our very own cave system. There's easy access to everything the Mendip Hills has to offer.
Our unrivalled success is largely due to the reputation and experience of our instructors – who we believe are the best in the business. Our pioneering approach to instructor training has evolved since we launched our industry-first training programme in 1995. Subsequently, we’ve built our business and our hard-earned reputation on the back of our successful training programme.
We know how tough it is to get started in the outdoor industry, and it’s even tougher to secure stable, year-round work, which is why we’ve developed this training programme from the ground up, applying everything we’ve learned over the last 30 years.
If you’re aiming for a rewarding career as an outdoor professional, this is the course for you.
