Evenings and weekends are your chance to reflect on your learning, consolidate your skills and learn crucial soft skills and gain industry experience.

We’ll host weekly workshops, presentations and seminars from industry professionals which will give you invaluable insight into life as an outdoor instructor. Our busy, outdoor activity centre will be open throughout your course. This provides an unparalleled opportunity to shadow sessions and observe the different instructional styles first hand. You’ll also use this time to start preparing for your new career.


We’ll help you create a professional CV with your information presented in a way we know the industry likes. We will guarantee you an interview here at Mendip Outdoor Pursuits.


We intend to offer a year’s contract as a full-time instructor to as many successful candidates as possible. You will also be invited to join our freelance pool or if you prefer to relocate after your training we can introduce you to other outdoor centres and provide a valuable reference.
